Under 18s

Under 18s 2019-03-23T17:52:39+00:00

In order for Under 18s to turn up and climb, they need to be supervised by an adult that has understanding of the risks involved. If the supervising adult has no experience climbing, we will need them to sign up for a Boulder Induction first. This is a one hour session with an instructor and will allow an adult to supervise up to 2 other 7-17 year olds or novice climbers. If you are supervising an under 7 year old, then the ratio needs to be 1:1.

 Please call or see our ‘All courses’ page for more information.

We will be running NICAS and NIBAS courses for under 18’s in the Summer Term, keep an eye out here or on our Facebook Page for more information.

We love having Under 18s about but we want to keep our facility adult friendly too. For this reason we are allowing Under 14 entry all day weekends, and under 18s until 7pm on weekdays. We will allow over 14 year olds supervised entry at the staff’s discretion provided we can see the young person is responsible and safe using our facility.

Under 7? You can use our KIDS ZONE

This is a dedicated area for younger children complete with a two tiered bouldering level, small roped climbs, and slide. 

Under 7s need 1:1 supervision by an adult who has had climbing experience, and understands the risks involved. If you have no experience, then you will complete a children’s area induction on your first visit.

If your children are 7 and above, then you will need to book onto a Boulder Induction  or Beginners Course which can be booked on via our ‘all courses’ page, or give us a phone call for more information!
