I found the session really useful, and have found myself paying a lot more attention to foot and body position in my climbs since, and as a result I’ve managed a few more oranges which I’d been struggling with. I really enjoyed the session!


Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take a Building Blocs class on my first visit to City Bloc?

We would recommend you book into a Get to Grips Induction if its your first time climbing. Building Blocs sessions more suitable for climbers who have already started their climbing journey, are familiar with our walls and our style of setting and want to progress their grade.

Which class should I sign up for?

If you’re sitting between two grades that split between our sessions, we’d recommend joining the lower grade class, this will give you more opportunities to assess and your core climbing skills which you can build on in the session.

Do I need pay for a climbing session as well as this class?

No, this class includes entry and if you are an Annual or Monthly Passholder the session is free.

 I enjoyed the Building Blocs session great deal. I found it very fun, useful and very satisfying when improvement was achieved. I thought the vibe of the session was very relaxed and good spirited. I appreciated the input from other climbers and the different techniques they demonstrated as well.
