What is Bouldering?
Bouldering in essence is the simplest and purest form of climbing. Just you, your climbing shoes and some chalk. No need for a harness or rope! Thankfully you’re never that far from the ground which is covered with thick foam matting. Without the harness and rope it also means it’s a much cheaper way to start climbing.
Can my Kids come in and climb?
All climbers under the age of 18 must be supervised. Bouldering can be a dangerous sport and for this reason we must be very careful with our Kids Policies. Safety first Kids (and adults of course!)
Currently not allowed. -This will however be changing soon. We are about to introduce a child friendly beginners circuit so we can accommodate younger children. Please bare with us until we get this in place.
Can climb under adult supervision with a maximum of 2 children to 1 adult. The adult must be a competent climber or have completed one of our family inductions.
Kids Climbing Club
The kids climbing club is a super sociable and fun way of teaching children all the foundations of climbing. It will allow their skills to develop as they grow through the years whilst making some awesome friends for life.
When does Kids Club / Squad Start?
From November we will be running the kids club and squad allowing the little ones to climb together, progress through the years and have lots of fun with their friends!
This is an Introduction class that’s perfect for a family. These fun sessions are our way of ensuring you are at your most comfortable when supervising your kids. It includes teaching them and yourselves the foundations so your children can safely find their feet in the world of climbing.
