Climbing Wall Activities

2 Day Adult Climbing Course

Our Climbing Courses are 2 days in duration, consisting of 2 hours per day. They are ran every Monday and Wednesday from 18.00 - 20.00 both evenings. It is compulsory that you attend both Monday and Wednesday course days ran on the same week. Participants will learn all aspects of wall climbing to include information about climbing safety, learning the various knots and correct procedures to belay. At the end of the course a climbing licence will be issued (only if you have passed all requirements) that will permit the climber to use the wall any time subject to availability. The licence must be produced to book onto the wall.

Climbers will be required to do a short test to prove competency on the wall with one of our Instructors.

Payment is requested at the time of booking to guarantee your place. Climbing Licence testing is held on a Wednesday at 8pm however booking in advance is required.
