Discover bouldering at Shipley Glen, for ages 8-15.


To help you learn the basics and become a competent boulderer, familiar with the equipment needed and fundamental techniques to begin bouldering outdoors with more confidence.


This 2 and a half hour introduction is aimed at those who are looking to develop their outdoor bouldering experience. As such it is ideal for novices and those who are active indoor wall climbers but have little experience of climbing outside. You don’t have to have any previous experience of rock climbing although being fit and active would be advantageous. The day is run on a one instructor to six participants (1:6) ratio. (parental accompaniment is required)


Meeting your instructor provides an opportunity to discuss you and the other participants experience and aspirations, enabling the instructor to plan the program around the main topics to be covered. These are:

  • Developing participants experience on a variety of rock features and angles.
  • Learning about bouldering equipment and how to use it.
  • Develop an ability to research routes and learn about grading.
  • Spotting a bouldering partner.
  • Coaching in personal climbing movement skills, climbing technique and psychological preparation.

We will do some confidence building games on boulders and small rocks to develop movement on gritstone and build confidence.

Equipment provided. But please message the facebook page or text Harry on 07769 318569 with your childs shoe size in advance.

Weather dependent activity, we may postpone at 48 hours notice should the forecast be unsuitable, offering either a postponement or refund as you wish.
