Devons Most Exciting Adventure Centre

Taster Sessions

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

Want to try climbing?

Our rock climbing taster sessions are for adults, children, families and groups. A climbing taster session is a one and a half 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 to spend half of your session climbing, and the other half bouldering in our brand new bouldering centre, all whilst being 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.

What people say rock and rapid

"Rock and Rapid are very flexible to everyones needs"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

All of the staff are very patient, great behaviour management and the children were challenged to achieve. Rock and Rapid are very flexible to everyones needs. The overall safety was excellent, but they allow children to take the necessary risks.

"Great centre, great staff, great atmosphere!"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

I have been climbing here on and off for almost 4 years now. I keep coming back. This is by far one of the most friendly, helpful and safe climbing centres I have ever been to. The staff are constantly on guard for any mishaps and are very approachable with any and all concerns Especially talking through hypothetical situations and scenarios. Their knowledge is current and at the highest level. Definitely a place to go, and keep going.
