Inductions

Everyone over 18 new to the centre is required to complete a Level 1 Induction in order to use the Traverse, Bouldering and Auto Belay High Walls. If you would like to use the Manual Belay walls you must complete an additional Level 2 Induction. Level 1 Inductions take between 15-30 minutes depending on your previous experience, one of our qualified instructors will take you through the safety essentials for using the walls as well as giving you some climbing tips to get you started. You are then free to climb for the remainder of the three hour session.

Inductions are also necessary for parents / guardians to be able to supervise children in the climbing centre. Once adults have completed a Level 1 Induction they are then able to supervise 2 children over the age of 6 on the Traverse, Bouldering and Auto Belay High Walls. Non climbing parents can supervise their children for free after having completed a Level 1 Induction.
Children are encouraged to take part in the Induction so that they are aware of the safety requirements of the centre.

Unsupervised Climbing for those aged 14-17

It is possible for us to sign off teenagers between the age of 14-17 to climb independently. This is only available to experienced climbers who have either been regularly attending ours Climbing Clubs or can prove previous experience. Only our senior instructors are able to ‘sign off’ an under 18 year old climber after observing them climbing. This may take one or more sessions in order to ensure that the climber is safe and responsible. The ‘sign off’ can be removed at any stage if unsafe or irresponsible behaviour is demonstrated. Please contact us for more details.

Rock climbing is a great whole-body workout

Climbing requires us to use all of the muscles groups in our body and it utilises all 3 energy systems. It requires stamina to climb long routes on the high walls, strength to climb hard boulders, core muscles for constant balance and awareness for coordination.
