Important Session Information and Policies

We keep it safe and fun with a max of 1:10 instructor to climber ratio.

Session prices are a guide and might change a bit based on where we climb, gear hire, and how many folks join. Prices are for one person; adding extra participants costs £20 per person per session, up to a maximum of 10 people.

Yep, everyone needs to be at least 18, unless you’ve got a parent or guardian with you.

To lock in your spot, we need a 50% non-refundable deposit of the quoted price for all sessions.

We’ll try to accommodate if you fancy climbing further afield, but there’ll be an extra fee to cover our travel time and costs.

British weather, eh? We’ll do our best to stick to the plan, but if it gets unsafe, we might have to change locations, postpone, or give refunds. Safety first!

Rock climbing can be tough, so it’s best to get some indoor experience first. We suggest you join our indoor sessions to get started. Try a Get to Grips Induction, then join our Building Blocs Classes to build up your climbing skills.

As Alfred Wainwright said, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.” But don’t worry, we always put safety first and will make sure the conditions are right for a good time.
