Total Novices to experts all welcome.   Harness and shoes can be rented at the climbing centre. 

Please arrive at the climbing centre wearing your climbing clothing, there are currently no changing room facilities.

To come along, you will need to sign up on this OutdoorLads event page.  You will also need to buy a session pass (or membership) from Boulders climbing center - once registered (see next section), this can be done from this page

If it's your first time climbing at Boulders (or you've not climbed since Boulders changed their booking system), you will also need to register with them in advance at and select the options based on your experience. Please message the event leader a few days before the event and we will arrange to meet in the car park next to the entrance at 18:50 and sign in together. 

I'm new to Climbing - can I come along?   If you've never climbed before, just let us know so we can arrange for you to be signed into the climbing centre as a supervised climber so that you can come and give it a try. If you enjoy your climbing experience, and would like to come climbing more regularly, we will also happily show you the ropes and teach you everything you need to know to climb safely.

Do I need to be Supervised as a Climber? If you answer NO to any of the following three questions, then you will need to arrange to be supervised. If you can answer YES to all these questions, you can sign up to this event as normal:

  1. Can you fit a climbing harness correctly?
  2. Can you tie in to a rope using the correct knots?
  3. Can you belay another climber correctly and confidently?

If you need to arrange a supervised session, please message the event leader before you sign up to this event to check availability for this session. Please note that the climbing centre limits the number of novice climbers we can supervise, so if you do not do this unfortunately we can't guarantee that we can sign you in to take part on the day.

Please do contact the event leader with any questions (by clicking on his name, next to his photo below and sending a private message).

If you are interested in climbing with us, but can't make this event, our other South Wales Climbing events can be found here.
