Frequently Asked Questions
What if I have never climbed before?
That is not a problem. We have beginners courses that will teach you all you need to know. If you are not interested in a course we have taster sessions available where you can try it out and just have a bit of fun. Alternatively book a private induction session and become an independent user of our gym.
What is the difference between Taster and Induction Session?
Taster session is one hour activity packed climbing session that is all about climbing as many routes as possible with one of our friendly qualified Instructors holding the ropes. It is designed for the novice/first time climber. Ideal family fun for all ages.
Induction, on the other hand, aims to teach you the basics to become independent climber, how to use any climbing centre without the need for an instructor to be there. The Induction session covers the following: fitting a harness, tying figure of eight, learning how to belay https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belaying , control a climbers descent and how to use a boulder wall safely.
