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 are an experienced climber and you can demonstrate that you know how to belay, tie in and secure a climber, then you can climb unsupervised in our centre.
In order to climb unsupervised you will need to register with Everyone Active, if you haven’t done so already. As well as this, you will need to complete a risk indemnity form and pass a Ropes competency test on arrival. (No need to prebook the competency test, it takes about 5-10min on arrival)
Any climbers who, during the Ropes competency test, are able to demonstrate a high level of aptitude and understanding of the various risks involved in climbing will be permitted to supervise up to a maximum of two Novice or Junior climbers.
If you have already climbed in our centre, you can book in online or via the app in advance. New climbers will need to visit and pay at reception on arrival.
