How to book

Family climb 

Starting in block 2, is our all new Family Climb sessions! This is the perfect opportunity for parents and caregivers to climb with their child.

 All adults will learn the skills to safely use a climbing wall, bouldering area, and all the relevant equipment, which will let them come and use our wall as public members and bring along up to 2 kids they can supervise.

Some skills taught will be using auto-belays safely, fitting and using equipment, setting up ropes, and more! This course is appropriate for anyone aged 8 years old and up - all children must be accompanied by an adult. 

Adults must attend for a minimum of 6 hours across multiple sessions to learn the necessary skills to use the climbing wall unsupervised.
