Devons Most Exciting Adventure Centre

Taster Sessions

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

Want to try climbing?

If you’ve never climbed before – or if it’s been a really long time since you hit the walls – your first port of call will probably be a taster session. We run climbing taster sessions in North Devon on a daily basis for novice climbers who want to give this thrilling activity a go for the first time.

Our climbing taster sessions run over 1.5 hours, with your time split between climbing on the ropes and in our new bouldering centre. Each session is led by one of our qualified instructors, who will introduce you to the basics of indoor climbing while keeping you safe on belay.

All of the equipment you need is included in the price of your session, so just turn up and get climbing!

Due to the nature of roped climbing, the minimum age for a taster session at Rock and Rapid Adventures is 6.

What people say rock and rapid

"Love the inclusiveness of this place"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

I started climbing here about a year ago and love the atmosphere and people I meet. Ladies might, on a Monday which is run by Simmo has become a weekly must. (the coffee is pretty awesome too.) Great instruction is given on technique including safety) plus games are put together to improve climbing ability. I bring my nieces here and they love it. It’s exercise without feeling like you’re i a gym. I can’t recommend it enough!

"Great rainy day activity for all the family"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

As a family of five who like to try new things, I can’t recommend this enough. The staff member who helped us was top class. Friendly, accommodating and keen. Although, we were all at different levels of experience, some of us complete notices at climbing – we all managed to spend an enjoyable couple of hours.
