Bouldering Induction FAQ

Who are Bouldering Inductions suitable for?

Bouldering inductions are suitable for anyone looking to learn the skills to become a competent boulderer and be able to use the bouldering area unsupervised at Summit Up.

Any children booked must be a minimum of 5 years old and accompanied by an adult also booked on the session. Maximum of two children for each participating adult.

Juniors (14+) can book on to the session without an adult as long as a parent or guardian stays on site for the duration of their stay.

What is included in the session?

During the session your friendly, experienced instructor will cover the skills required to use the bouldering area safely, enabling you to be signed off as a competent boulderer.

Should you demonstrate that you have learned these skills to a suitable level you can stay after the session and continue to climb unsupervised at no additional cost.

When are boulder inductions available? Do I need to pre-book?

Whilst bouldering inductions are available daily, as capacity is limited pre-booking is essential.

During busy periods such as weekends and school holidays we would recommend booking further ahead.
