Taster Sessions

An introduction to climbing with one of our expert instructors...

Want to try climbing?

Our taster sessions are for adults, children, families and groups. A climbing taster session is a one-hour climbing lesson with one of our professional instructors. This is the perfect introduction to climbing for beginners, and is suitable for anyone from 6 to 96 years of age can take part in a taster session and we have challenges to suit all ages and abilities.

The equipment is provided and we get you climbing straight away. There is no ‘rope work’ for you to learn on a taster – it’s all about the climbing. You will get an hour climbing and will be encouraged and coached by your instructor.

We run taster sessions all day, every day – but we suggest you call and book in advance. You can call us on 01769 379002.

Really good day out and cater for all levels of ability. As complete beginners we were a bit nervous to begin with but soon got up to speed. Very good value for money.
