Experienced Adult Climbers (18+) 
If you have participated in Bouldering at other walls before you can register at reception on your first visit.  Our staff will just need to ask you a few questions so that we are happy that you have enough experience to use the centre safely. 

If you've not climbed for some time or if you have only done roped climbing in the past. In a similar way to using ropes and harnesses, there are particular skills you need to be proficient in to stay safe when bouldering so a Refresher/Induction may be idea. 

Novice Adult Climbers (18+) 
If you are new to Bouldering you will need to complete a 30 min induction (see below for Induction times) on your first visit.   We will show you how it all works and on completion, you will be able to register for unsupervised climbing during public times.   

Alternatively, you can be supervised by a competent experienced climber who can sign you in as a guest and be responsible for you.  After visiting a few times as a supervised guest you will then have the skills and knowledge to become a member and can then use the centre unsupervised.  

Our Bouldering instructor is available on a Monday evening 7.30pm - 9.00pm for Adults/Improvers to give advice/guidance if required.
