It’s great to see you’re considering giving climbing a go.
Climbing is a beautiful sport, so we encourage everyone to come and see why millions of people around the world are pulling and pushing themselves up walls.
If you have climbed at an indoor climbing gym before and this is just your first time coming to City Bloc, please simply complete our Induction Form here and get booked in for a climb.
Newbies, getting started is straight-forward…
1. Do your Climbing Induction
We require all new climbers to go through the induction process, to ensure you have a clear understanding of how indoor bouldering works and how to use the centre safely. You will watch our induction video and then be asked some questions. At the end you will complete our induction form and then you are ready to book.
Had a taster session today and Dan was a fantastic coach despite us being complete novices. Really enjoyed it and would recommend to all newcomers.Becky s. april 2019
2. Book a ‘Get to Grips’ session
Are you completely new to climbing? The best way to get started and really enjoy your journey is to learn the basics first, you will progress much faster and feel more confident.
We have a variety of introductory coaching sessions available to suit your needs, but we particularly recommend our ‘Get to Grips’ session. We will help you start your journey, with COVID safety as a top priority. Find out more here, or go straight to booking.

Hadn’t done any climbing before but the guy was very friendly and helped us getting started and showed us what to do. There was lots of routes to do, we didn’t even get through all the beginner ones! Would definitely recommend.James R. november 2018
