Under 18's policy

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: The Font is a Bouldering only facility, a form of free climbing that is performed on 15 ft. walls without the use of ropes or harnesses. It is a potentially high risk sport. Please note, we do not offer roped climbing or a dedicated Children’s area.
We therefore have strict policies to ensure everyone coming to the centre is as safe as possible. Under 18’s must attend with an experienced climbing supervisor or be booked on to a coached session with a member of The Font’s coaching team.

We welcome kids of all ages but due to the high risk nature of the sport, we ask that you read the information below before attending the Centre in order to understand the requirements for each age group:
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 that stage, then we recommend booking onto one of our Introduction to Bouldering coached sessions or Family Bouldering Coached sessions before attending with your kids.

If you’re already a competent and experienced boulderer, we’d still recommend that you book onto one of our family sessions when available. We will introduce you and your kids to The Font in a fun session that is full of great tips when climbing with kids. But, if you do want to just rock up and climb casually then you will be able to do so once the registration process is complete.
