Beginners

We pride ourselves on being a friendly and inviting gym that is as much for beginners as it is regular climbers. If you’re new to climbing there are two different ways you can get started…

Induction
An Induction lasts around 15 minutes and covers the basic safety features of climbing. You’ll be given a full safety briefing, a tour of the centre and an introduction to the grading system. The Induction costs £20 per head which includes shoe hire and your entry for the rest of the day.

Beginners Course
If you’d like more tuition than our Induction provides then our Beginners Course could be perfect for you. You’ll be taken through the basic safety aspects that the Induction covers but the remainder of the session will be dedicated to teaching you how to climb using the different techniques. The session lasts 1 hour and costs £30 per head. The price includes shoe hire and your entry for the rest of the day.
