The Climbing Hangar is hosting Grope Mountain, an interactive art exhibition for the more adventurous among you

Originally launched in New York’s Museum of Sex and inspired by the climbing wall environment, Grope Mountain explores the intersection of eroticism, physicality and fun using holds cast from volunteers bodies.

Visitors can watch the action whilst sipping on a ‘love potion’ cocktail, or they can take a more active part, using the holds’ orifices and appendages to complete their climbs and be crowned King or Queen of Grope Mountain.

What to expect

Grope Mountain takes place in an actual climbing wall that is open to the public, so there’s a few things we’ll need to do to keep you safe (from the walls at least):

  • Visitors must be over 18
  • All visitors will be required to complete a waiver for insurance purposes (either via email a couple of days before the event or when you turn up at reception).
  • Visitors who intend to climb will be required to wear climbing shoes. All visitors will be required to remove their outdoor shoes before crossing the mats.
  • We will have staff on hand to help you get off the ground if this is your first time climbing and to ensure your safety.
  • You will not be allowed to climb if you have consumed alcohol before showing up

Pricing

General entry: £10
