We are happy to announce that we are now officially open! Competent and experienced climbers are welcome to turn up, we will need to check your ability and provided you meet our centre requirements, you will be free to climb. If you are successfully signed off you will also be able to supervise up to 2 inexperienced climbers.

For new climbers, aged 18+ we will be holding bouldering inductions. It is important that you book on to these as sessions book up quite fast.

For the moment, all under 18 year olds will need to be supervised by an adult who is registered with us as an unsupervised climber. It is the responsibility of the adult to be supervising at all times. As the centre develops we will be offering coaching sessions, group sessions and courses. Please be patient and watch this space!

For 14-18 year olds with considerable previous experience in climbing we do offer an hour Unsupervised Access Assessment to see whether we would be happy to allow unsupervised bouldering. We understand that some juniors in this age group are committed and responsible climbers who can be trusted to use the facility sensibly but we will need to see this in action before signing off on unsupervised climbing. We will be offering these assessments at weekends and over the coming half term holiday. Please send us an email or give us a call to book on to one of these.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

The Oakwood Climbing Team
