Getting started (youth) |


Bouldering is an adult sport that the whole family can enjoy. If you’re looking to bring a child to climb at the centre, here are three easy steps to get you going - please note that all sessions involving supervised children must be pre-booked:

1/ Register online

All young climbers (and any supervisors) must complete our registration process by completing an Acknowledgement of Risk form before their first session. Registrations last for 2 years and must be filled in by a parent or guardian.

2/ Book a First Time Climb...

All children and adults who are new to climbing and our centre should start by booking themselves a First Time Climb session - see below. Alternatively, you can book a Private Coaching session for a longer instructed intro to the sport.

3/ ...or book an instructed session

We can provide sessions as follows:

  • Private Coaching for groups of up to 4
  • 1 hour instructed sessions for 7-11 year olds, either as one-off fun classes or as a way to continue to work through our Boulder Academy levels
  • 1 hour instructed sessions for 12-15 year olds, including working towards our Youth Boulderers Award which enables 12-15 year olds to climb unsupervised at the centre, with parental permission (this normally takes at least 4 x 1hr sessions to achieve).

Unfortunately we don't currently offer Birthday Party sessions.

Details of all our sessions currently can be found on our Instructed sessions page.

We look forward to seeing you!
