'BOOK A CLIMB' slots are an unsupervised climbing session. All children and novice adults need supervision. The supervising adult must be a registered competent roped climber.

First Time Climbing

Everyone wishing to climb in the centre must complete a registration form - either the Acknowledgment of Risk Form or the Novice Supervision Form. You will need to complete a new form every couple years to ensure that you have read our most up to date conditions of use and rules and that the details we hold for you are current.

The first time you register you'll be asked to check in at Reception to complete your registration by answering some safety questions and paying a £3 one-time registration fee.
You may not top-rope or lead if you have a bouldering only registration.
You can upgrade to a roped climbing registration for free at any time.

Peak Time Climbing
