5 places left
If you are new to climbing or would like a refresher, you’re on the right page! Sign up to a beginner's session to have a great time, make new friends and learn an exciting new sport.
After a quick safety briefing, you will enjoy plenty of climbing and learn the climbing and safety techniques with relaxed coaching from one of our friendly, experienced climbing leaders. You’ll also have the opportunity to have a go at bouldering (low level climbing with big crash mats).
Please make sure that you sign up on the event so we know to expect you, and let us know if you can no longer attend. You can cancel your attendance on this page until 5:00pm on the day of the event. On arrival head up to the centre’s reception desk where you’ll meet with the event leader who will get you signed in. You will need to pay an entry fee to the climbing centre, click here for details and note Outdoorlads has negotiated concession prices if you become a member at the centre.
We have a 20 minute break in the café during the session and head to the Molly house pub at the end of the session for a cheeky pint or a cup of tea and cake.
If you have any questions or need any more information just get in touch with the event leader by clicking on their profile below, or take a look at the My first climbing event page for more information.
We look forward to seeing you climbing soon!
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 some 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 centres staff. Everyone must also take responsibility for their own safety while participating in Indoor climbing events.
