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. Induction, on the other hand, aims to teach you the basics to become independent climber. This session covers the following: fitting a harness, tying figure of eight, learning how to belay.
