Whether you’re ready to climb, want to learn from scratch or develop your climbing skills through individual or group coaching, we have a wide range of activities for all adult climbing enthusiasts.
Adult Climbing Coached
If you already know the ropes or have completed the Beginners Adult Climbing Course then you can climb at Westway unsupervised as a Casual Adult Climb.
You’ll need to register and complete a Climbing Competency Test by showing us that you can put on a harness, tie in and belay. This can be done at the centre at any time during our opening hours. It takes around 5-10 minutes to register and take the test.
Registered Competent Climbers can supervise up to two people (juniors or adults) in the wall.
Please note, those accompanying Competent Climbers cannot climb unsupervised or belay until they are Competent Climbers themselves.
