BMC have released a guide for climbing with the young ones, if you’re unsure of how to proceed!
There are not many sports families can enjoy together, regardless of age or ability. Climbing is one of them. Here at Highball we have various options and pathways for families, from one off ‘have a go’ experience sessions and learn to climb courses, through to longer term development and coaching. We can even support parents by ‘coaching the coaches’ i.e. help and tips on how to coach your own children when you climb together.
If there’s something we don’t do, just ask, and we can build a bespoke session or package just for you.
If you’re climbing with a young one and aren’t sure how to proceed, the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) have put together a guide.
120mins | From £17.50 Per Person
The Mega Sesh is an opportunity for parents and children to take part in the same fun session. These extended 2hr sessions will get you roped climbing, bouldering, slack-lining (weather permitting) and also climbing compact caving ladders! A great way for mums and dads to have fun and #GetClimbing with their children (age 8+).
The 2hr Mega Sesh is great value from just £17.50 per person – only 12 spaces are available!
THE FAMILY TASTER SESSION
60mins | From £35 Per Person
Why not bring the whole family (2 adults & 2 Children) for a 60 min private taster session. You’ll experience all the highs of roped climbing as well as a little taster of bouldering too.
A private taster session is a great way to have a go at climbing and bouldering with no commitment and very little learning. You’ll have your own instructor for 60 minutes whose sole purpose is simple – to get you climbing, so don’t be surprised if you’re a little sore the next day, in a good way. If there are under 8’s unfortunately we won’t be able to go bouldering.
