Class times:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays 19:30 - 21:30

Anyone aged over 17 years old interested in taking up climbing can gain the skills and insight they need to get started. This course is designed to teach you the skills required to register yourself as a competent climber and to use the wall unsupervised.

This course lasts 4 hours either split over two weeks on the same day of the week (eg. Monday week 1 and Monday week 2) or over one weekend (Saturday and Sunday). Customers must ensure that they can attend both sessions scheduled for the course when booking as no refund will be given in the event that a cancellation of the second session is made.

If you have a group of aspirant climbers (2 people and above) interested in learning to climb then please contact reception for more information on private Learn to Climb courses.

Learn to Lead Climb

Course duration: 2 x 1.5 hour sessions

Course cost: £55 per person

Course times: Mondays 19:15 to 20:45

 

Once you’ve got the basics mastered you’ll want to start lead climbing - find a friend and we’ll teach you how! This course lasts 3 hours, split into 2 1.5 hour sessions. We supply all the necessary equipment, including ropes.  Participants should have prior indoor climbing experience confidently climbing 5+ or above (this allows you to focus on the technicalities of lead climbing without concern of the difficulty of climbing).

If you have a partner and neither of you can make the scheduled course then please contact reception for more information on making a private Learn to Lead climb booking.

This club operates as one entity for both NICAS and non NICAS participants and therfore allows drop in entry.

Since Lead climbing and Lead belaying are inherantly mroe dangerous than bottom rope climbing (what all our other clubs offer); Parents/guradians should make themselves familiar with these risks as they will be required to give consent for such activities before the junior can participate. Those aged 16 or over do not require parental consent but must still provide consent. All information on risks and consent forms are available from Transition Extreme.
