Visiting the centre with under 18's

Whether you’re climbing with your kids or just looking to supervise them, you will need to be a competent and experienced boulderer. If you are not yet at this stage, then we recommend booking onto one of our Introduction to Bouldering coached sessions before attending with your kids.

Alternatively, we run junior coaching sessions for ages 8-11 and 12-18. These sessions are open to all abilities and do not require a parent or guardian to be present. Juniors are under the supervision of our coaching team at all times during these sessions.

‘Drop-In’ Coaching Schedule

For Junior’s looking to try out the sport or not able to commit to a full term of coaching, try our ‘Drop-In’ sessions. Climb as little or often as you like. Just book on a session and get climbing! For those looking to commit to a more regular, structured syllabus then take a look at our Junior Development Programme.
