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

Whilst climbing 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.

To book please call the centre on xxxxxxxxxxxx.

What should I wear?

Please wear comfortable clothing and trainers. Climbing shoes can be provided on your session as required.

Open toed shoes, flip flops, boots, crocs or heels are not permitted in the climbing arena.

Long hair must be tied back and all loose jewellery, hats or hooded tops must be removed prior to climbing for safety reasons.

Do I need to bring any equipment with me?

All necessary equipment is provided by us and there are no additional hire fees for this.

However if you are coming to this roped climbing induction having done some bouldering and owning your own climbing shoes or chalk bag feel free to bring them along.

Do you have lockers?

Yes, we have small lockers available by our reception that are free to use. They are big enough for a coat or a small bag.

As loose jewellery can't be worn whilst climbing we would recommend leaving it at home. Alternatively it can be left in these lockers at your own risk.

Are spectators permitted on the session?

We have ample seating where spectators can watch the action and have a brew.

However please be aware that for safety reasons spectators may not be able to follow participants into the climbing areas.

Can I book a Climbing Induction for just one person?

To learn the skills required to become competent it is necessary that there is one person climbing whilst the other is learning to safeguard them. This is why we need a minimum of two people on the session.

The second person can either be an adult also learning the skills or a child just wanting to climb lots whilst the adult learns the ropes!

Should you still struggle to find another person for your session let us know and we'll see if we can find someone else in the same boat.
