New to Climbing?

We ask first time climbers to book onto a bouldering induction, to learn about bouldering safety and simple climbing technique.
We are a family friendly center with a minimum age of 4 years old.

Experienced Climber

Please make sure you have completed a waiver for yourself and anyone you wish to supervise.
We don’t do timed sessions, so just come on down when you would like to climb!
To climb our rope walls, climbers must complete an in centre belay and safety assessment.
