Last edited Jan. 21, 2022

To climb unsupervised with children at the Castle, the supervising adult needs to be a registered unsupervised climber (this means you're able to belay and tie in safely and completed our Roped Climbing AoR Form) - Bouldering only climbers cannot supervise novices. If this is you, check into one of our instructed sessions or book a course instead.
