The Heeley Hang returns to the Millennium Park in Sheffield this Saturday with another free ‘learn to climb’ session.

Heeley Development Trust is following on from the success of its events earlier in the year by staging another open access bouldering session from noon to 3pm on the new boulders in the park.

“We’re hoping to introduce people to the boulders, widen community access to the facilities and enable people to have a go if they feel ready,” said Bev Nunn, 
events and involvement organiser for the development trust.

“We had people passing by at the launch who didn’t know the boulders were there, and several local families expressed an interest in climbing as a communal activity,” she added.

“We’ve also had a lot of interest from people who couldn’t access the right equipment, so we’ll be providing climbing mats and shoes of all sizes.”

Local climbing experts will be on hand to offer advice and refreshments will be available.

Doctor Bike will also be 
on hand at this Saturday’s event, carrying out basic 
bike repair and maintenance.

The Heeley Hang is open to anyone, regardless of age or climbing experience, although children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult.

Meet at the Sheaf boulder behind the children’s playground.
