If you don’t fancy climbing there is no need to book an adult climber as well, you are more than welcome to come and watch. Or if you are with family or friends, you can come into the arena and help them climb by ‘clipping’ them in*. Ask for further details in the briefing session.
*Subject to availability.

We strongly advise booking in advance especially for busy times such as weekends and school holidays. We have limited availability per session and so booking guarantees your space and avoids disappointment. However, you are welcome to ‘rock up’ and if there is space, you will be able to book in and climb.

Everyone from 4-year olds to adults of any age can climb. The only exception is our Toddler Climb & Play. These sessions are specifically for children 5 years old and younger. 

Clothes you would be comfortable climbing in and no strappy tops especially for our smaller climbers who will be wearing a full body harness. Loose fitting clothing should ideally be removed or at least secured, i.e. cardigans buttoned up and headscarves tucked into tops. Footwear should be trainers, or a similar fully foot encompassing shoe with adjustable tightness i.e. NO flip flops, sandals, crocs, heelys, climbing shoes or dolly shoes
