Do I need to book?

If you are new to climbing you will need to book a session with our instructors. All sessions with our AWESOME instructors need to be pre booked. If you are an experienced climber and have filled out a membership form you can use our centres without booking.

Is equipment hire included?

If you have booked for a session with our instructors at one of our centres that offer roped climbing then harness hire is included. When you first start climbing you'll find that it's fine to climb with trainers or similar on your feet. As you progress you may find that you want to use rock shoes, this is not included in session prices. Wall entrance does not include equipment hire.

How long can I stay?

Once members have paid to climb they can stay and climb for as long as their arm muscles allow. The only exception is our weekday lunchtime deal where climbing is only allowed between 11.30am and 2pm.

We have walls starting from a meagre 2m and instructors that are very friendly, experienced and patient. So come along and we'll provide a session that is fun and challenging without being too scary!

Is there a minimum or maximum age?

The minimum age for taking part in a session with our instructors in 6. If you're taking part without using our instructors there's no minimum age. There's no maximum age, if you feel fit and able then come along! We've had people well into their 90s using our centres.
