Our Beginners Climbing Course is perfect for people who’ve never climbed before or those who’ve done a bit and want to climb indoors safely and unsupervised.
Shoes and harness are included. Just bring a padlock for a locker, a bottle of water and bags of energy!
As a guide, come in clothing that you’d usually wear to the gym – flexible, loose fitting clothing. You can also bring a zip up hoodie in case you get chilly.
Once you’ve completed our Beginners Climbing Course and passed the Climbing Competency Test, you’ll be a Registered Competent Climber and can climb at Westway unsupervised.
You can also join us for social events, take part in competitions and improve your technique in our Climbing Pathway on the following courses:
You’ll also be able to supervise up to two other adults or juniors in the climbing wall. Please note anyone who is not a Registered Competent Climber will not be able to belay.
The 6-hour course costs £95.00 (£66.50 concessions) and includes harness and shoe hire as well as our expert coaching advice.
You can choose to the Beginners Climbing Courses over an intensive weekend or spread the course on the same weekday over a couple of weeks.
As soon as you’ve picked your days, you can book online, over the phone or in person. The course is open to everyone over 18.
