The Kids Area

Our Kids Area is an excellent introduction into bouldering. It comprises of traversing walls and slabs, a small ‘Top out boulder’ (The Iceberg) where the descent is by climbing down or a controlled jump and a larger ‘Top out boulder’ (The Titanic) where there is a slide to descend.

Our kids section is suitable from 3/4 years + and is used with parental supervision. No booking or prior experience is required. Just come down to the centre and let reception know its your first time and you’d like some information on how to use the kids area safely.

Clean and well fastened trainers are fine to wear as long as climbing in the Kids area only.  Climbing shoes can be rented at £3 per session if prefered.

Entry Kids Area: £4 per child per day /  £28 for 30 day pass (consecutive) *must be accompanied each visit by a registered supervising adult.

The Main Area

Adult Sign In

One of the easiest ways for U18’s to climb in our centre is to be signed in by a registered adult. the adult will take responsibility for the child for the day.

If the Adult has never climbed before and needs some instruction on how to supervise safely please call ahead to ensure someone will be available to help.

If the Adult is happy they know how to use the centre and supervise the U18 then just come on down… No need to book.

Taster Sessions

If you prefer to try climbing in a smaller group or a group of your choice then a taster session is for you. These are available Wednesday 21.00, Friday 21.00, Saturday 15.00+16.00 and Sunday 12.00+13.00 . All sessions are subject to availability and Booking is essential.

£15 per person

Junior Assessments

This is the best option for teenagers (13 Years +) who would like to climb themselves or with friends without an instructor present. if they have previous experience of climbing in indoor walls an assessment form and consent form will need to be filled out by the climber and the guardian and checked by a member of staff before they are signed off.

The Junior Assessment is also covered by our BWIAS (Boulderworld Indoor Award Scheme) Please call us to find out more.
