Vauxwall Climbing Centre
Set under the arches of Vauxhall train station is this climbing centre named Vauxwall. Yes, very clever indeed. It's a pretty hi-tech addition to bouldering's growing empire in London, run by some very friendly faces. Located in three of the arches, this is a bouldering-only place suitable for all levels of clamberers and open pretty late too. Those in the know will want to know they've got a 35 degree symmetrical training board, competition wall, traverse wall, circuit board, permaset routes and a campus board. (You know what all those are right? Yeah same.) Get yourself signed up for an induction session, chalk up your sweaty fingers and climb away.
