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 https://climber.hellocapitan.com/bouldersuk/memberships-and-passes/
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 https://bouldersuk.com/register-to-climb 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:
- Can you fit a climbing harness correctly?
- Can you tie in to a rope using the correct knots?
- 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.

Climbing and Bouldering Participation statement
Please note that every person participating should be aware of (and accept) that those members perceived as ‘in charge’ or leading the event are not necessarily qualified, do not need to be qualified, and are not regarded by OutdoorLads, or themselves as ‘technical experts’ but are amateur climbers with experience and who are happy to impart their knowledge. Any advice given should be considered with this in mind by the recipient.
All those attending the event must also be aware of the centre's own terms and conditions of participation and abide by them, along with any instructions given by the centre's staff. Everyone must also take responsibility for their own safety while participating in Indoor climbing events.
IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement
You MUST complete a Participation Statement, in addition to booking your event space before attending an OutdoorLads event. You only need to complete this Participation Statement once, not for each event you attend.
Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are extremely mild, or who has recently tested positive for Covid-19, is asked not to attend.
What to bring
Best to bring your own climbing harness and shoes. The centre has a few to hire on a first come, first served basis (which is far from ideal)
There are cubby holes at the centre where your belongings can be stored.
What to Wear
Wear what you will be climbing in, on the way to the centre; no changing rooms are available. It is best to wear either shorts, combats or tracksuit bottoms. Avoid tight fitting clothing which hampers movement. A t-shirt or vest is also suitable.
Any jewellery such as rings, watches, chains or bangles should be removed before beginning the session to prevent injury.
Food & drink
There is a cafe at the centre where snacks can be purchased - Cashless.
