IS IT FOR ME?

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. (for those with little experience outdoors, parental accompaniment is preferred)

  • Learning about bouldering equipment and how to use it.
