If you’ve never climbed before, this is an ideal opportunity to come along and give it a go. Taster sessions last for one hour and will give you the chance to try things out at your own pace to see if climbing could be the sport for you!
Top Rope Induction
This is the ideal course if you have never climbed before and want to get to grips with the basics of rock climbing in a safe and structured environment. The course consists of three 1 1/2 hour sessions, which concentrate on basic rope work and climbing skills. All climbing equipment is provided so all you will need is something comfortable to wear. On successfully completing the course, you can then use the wall unsupervised subject to the wall conditions.
If you’re not sure about enjoying this exciting sport, try a Climbing Taster first.
Children aged 3 – 7 can join the Gecko Club and 7-16 the Rock Monkeys Club until reaching the age and level of technical competence to allow them to climb unsupervised.
Lead Climbing Induction
Want to climb the big wall?!? You need to be able to lead climb. This course is a logical progression once top-roping has been mastered. Learn the difference in belay techniques, how to clip into quickdraws and to sport climb safely. Three 1 1/2 hour sessions will get you there… although it won’t guarantee you’ll reach the top of the wall!
