Kids love climbing! We welcome families to come and climb together for a session and you can hire all the equipment you need to stay safe and have a good time. Competent Climbers can belay under 16s on our main wall as well.
Dedicated Bouldering and Traverse area
Our dedicated kids climbing area is suitable for children as young as age 3 (as long as they fit a helmet). We have some tunnels as well to keep them amused for hours and the area is completely matted and separate from the main bouldering area next to the cafe – so you can relax with a fresh coffee and watch the action unfold.
Auto Belay and Tower
For the more adventerous kids, our tower provides a real challenge, requiring skill and courage to scale the 12-15m peak!
Competent Climbers can belay up to 2 novice/children anytime during our opening times, or you can book a place on our regular Instructor Led Sessions.
We also have climbing pillars with loads of dedicated kids climbs and routes set on four separate top ropes. The climbs are easy, confident building routes with good visability for parents to watch.
Academy and Specialist Sessions
Our Rock Starz group for age 4 – 8 is a great session for those who have the climbing bug.
We are also a NICAS Awarding centre Levels 1 to 4 and use this as a framework for our academy session – The Ascenders.
You can also climb a tree and learn to Abseil in the warmer months!
