Have your very own extreme mountaineering experience right in the heart of Covent Garden. With ice axes, crampons (or studded boots to you and me) and help of a trained instructor you can spend an hour climbing Verticle Chill’s ice walls.

Oh wow. This was such good fun. I was not sure what to expect as I walked downstairs, but I was put at ease by the staff who got us kitted up (you can bring your own if you happen to have ice picks lying around OR you can rent everything) in winter gear and into the ice room. TIP: Go on Tuesday as on Mondays they redo the ice wall.. that means no using someone else's path, you carve your own!

You are belayed in when on the wall and they guides help you decide your next move if you get stuck. They also give you tips on how to stay relaxed and not tire yourself out (believe me you will get tired). You are limited to two people in the room climbing so maybe not the best for large groups.

It was something fun and different to do in London though so super glad we went!
