How to book

Climbing parties

One of our most popular party packages, you'll experience a variety of fun climbing-based activities, games, and challenges on the climbing wall and up in bouldering cave.

Under the expert supervision of our qualified instructors, you'll begin with a safety talk and warm up, before having the opportunity to belay, traverse and climb the wall!

Climbing parties can be booked in groups of either 8 or 16.
