If you are new to bouldering then we recommend coming along to one of our Taster Sessions where one of our friendly instructors will show you how it all works.
Alternatively you can join one of the Boulder Social sessions. They are informal climbing sessions run to try out the newly set boulders, get to know other local climbers share friendly advice.
Or just turn up! As an adult you can pre-register to climb by watching an induction video, reading our Terms & Conditions and completing a registration form. Make sure to pay attention as the team will ask you a few questions before they let you pay to climb.
Once that is completed you can go and climb, if you have any further questions the team will always be happy to help out.
No matter what your experience, you will be asked to watch a short video induction, read our conditions of use and fill out a registration form. The staff will ask you a couple of questions to ensure you have understood the induction and then you will be free to use the centre.
PRE-REGISTER HERE or do it on one of our tablets at the gym.
