Join ODL for an enjoyable evening of climbing in Nottingham. Whether you’re an experience climber or wanting to try it for the first time then the Nottingham Climbing Centre has something to offer.
The event is very casual and non-competitive, giving guys the opportunity to meet friends, excercise and have fun.
If it’s your first time climbing, or it's been a while, then we will be happy to orientate you, taking you through the safety aspects to ensure you feel comfortable and confident to climb. The key thing is that everyone goes at their own pace.
First time at the Climbing Centre?
If its you first time at the Climbing Centre then you must complete an 'Adult Unsupervised Climber Form' before you will be allowed to climb.
For people who have climbed before, you can complete it in advance here: https://app.rockgympro.com/waiver/esign/nottinghamclimbing/7a91c123-cb63-41fa-bef9-7c9b26c071d3
For complete beginners, a short video must be watched at the centre, before you can complete this form. So you can fill in the form on the night.
- Adult Entry: £7.50
- Student Entry: £6.00
- Boot hire: £2.50
- There is also a lifetime mebership fee of £3.00 on your first visit
There is lots of free on-street parking nearby.
After the session we may go for a pint at a nearby pub.
What to bring
What to Wear
It is best to wear either shorts, combats or tracksuit bottoms. No tight trousers 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.
The only specialist kit you are advised to wear are rock climbing shoes, which can be hired from the centre for £2.50 if you haven't got your own. The leader has some spare shoes in various sizes, so speak to them before hiring to see if they fit. Some guys climb in trainers for the first few times, as they get used to it, which is also fine.
The Leaders will provide the harnesses and belay for the rope climbing
There are on-site lockers and a padlock can be borrowed from the front desk.
Food & drink
There is a cafe area at the centre where hot and cold drinks along with snacks can be purchased. Bottled drinks can also be purchased here.
