FAQ’s

Do I need any previous climbing experience?

No. Taster Sessions are perfect for both newcomers and those with previous climbing experience. It’s also a great way for ‘climbers’ to bring their family along for a fun day out!

How many climbs will I get?

This very much depends on the age, experience and confidence in the group. Younger climbers or those new to climbing may need a few attempts to get up the wall and some may not make it all the way on their first attempts, but this is fine; it’s all about setting your own goals.

If you want to guarantee lots of climbing, then we’d recommend booking a private session.

Will I get to the top?

We have a mixture of climbs and challenges suitable for all ages. If you want to get to the top, we’re sure you will be able to, however, instructors will not push you or your children further than they want to go; when you’re confident enough, you will get there on their own.

What is the Instructor/Climber Ratio?

We have a maximum working ratio of 1 to 9, however, most of our taster sessions operate on a maximum 1 to 6. We feels this offers increased value for money and time on the wall. Ultimately, instructors have the final say and will make changes if they feel necessary.

What’s next after a taster session if me or my children want to climb more regularly?

We have a range of climbing sessions for children; from fun ‘pay as you go’ activity sessions and climbing clubs, to ongoing coaching and development programs. Junior Climbing

For adults, we’d recommend either the intro to climbing course or the bouldering induction as your next step, before checking out our coaching courses which offer great value for deliver real results. Adult Climbing

Can I climb with my children?

Once you have completed either the intro to climbing course or bouldering induction, you will be able to supervise up to 2 guests over the age of 8, or 1 guest if aged under 8. More info on supervising guests.
