Taster Session FAQ

Who are Taster Sessions suitable for?

Taster sessions are suitable for anyone who would like to experience the thrill of climbing and is a minimum of 5 years old.

With the potential to spend time in the bouldering area, the roped climbing arena and on the auto belays, they are a fantastic way to experience all the more traditional forms of climbing that the centre offers.

Our instructors are very experienced at helping less confident people so if that's you don't worry, you'll never be made to do anything you don't feel comfortable with. By the end of the session you'll likely have surprised yourself!

When are Taster Sessions available? Do I need to pre-book?

Taster Sessions are available daily however 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 0161 820 8750.

What should I wear?

Please wear comfortable clothing and trainers.

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?

No, equipment is provided by us and there are no additional hire fees for this.

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 Taster Session for just one person?

As climbing is such a physical activity we would typically book taster sessions for a minimum of two people, to allow each person the opportunity to have a breather (and encourage their partner!) in between climbs.

However if you can't find any other children or adults who would like to join in on the fun give us a call and we'll certainly try to accommodate you.
