New to Bouldering
You don’t need to be an experienced climber* to enjoy bouldering. However, if you’re not already a competent climber you’ll need to either come with a friend who is an experienced climber or book onto one of our Intro to Bouldering sessions to learn how to boulder safely and make the most of the bouldering we offer.
COME WITH A FRIEND
If you know someone who already climbs with us, there's a good chance that they can bring you along as their guest.
This means that they'll be signing you in and will be looking after you in the centre. Only competent, registered adult climbers can bring guests so please, ensure that the person you're coming with is registered with us and is over 18.
If you're coming as a guest you'll need to come 4 or 5 times before you can register for yourself.
There is no registration fee payable for guests and, if the person supervising you is a member, you might be able to get in completely free!
