Novice supervision is a great way to introduce your friends and family to climbing, to boulder with them and to belay them when they do their first roped climbs.
It's important to us that climbing is accessible for everyone and done in a safe manner. Here are a few key takeaways from our novice supervision policy:
We expect supervisors to remain with their novice at all times, and particular care should be taken when supervising children in the Centre. If you'd like to read more about bringing children please visit our 'Bringing Children' page.
Young climbers (14-17 years) can climb unsupervised if they complete an under 18 assessment.
Becoming a competent climber takes time and practice. Even if you’ve covered the basic safety points, your guest may not be ready to climb unsupervised. Our staff are here to help you - if there’s anything you’re not sure about just ask one of our Duty Managers.
