Learn to Climb

 

Climbing is fun, healthy and safe! We’ve got everything you need to get started from an indoor bouldering wall to an outdoor climbing tower above the treetops.

Open to groups of all ages and perfect for schools, birthday parties, and corporate teams. We also run ‘Crag Rats’, our climbing club for young people every Friday. Kids can also try climbing and more during the holidays if they jump on our ever popular school holiday activity days (8am-5pm every day of the holidays).

 

Outdoors - The Tower

 

At the entrance to our woodland zone you'll find the mighty Climbing Tower. It makes some go weak at the knees, but even a beginner can get to the top if they pick the right path. Climb a range of novice and intermediate routes, with one of the three sides devoted to Abseiling.

  • Sheltered woodland setting - panoramic views if you climb high enough
  • Fully roped, instructor led session to safely guide you to the top
  • Ideal for most ages (8 yrs and up recommended)
  • Lots of seating if you prefer to watch!

 

Indoors - The Climbing Barn

 

This is where it all began at the legendary ‘Cliff’s Barn’ Climbing Wall. Right at the heart of our activity centre and home to ‘Crag Rats’ climbing club - it's perfect for beginners or as a venue for a special birthday party.

  • Easy routes, great for first time and younger climbers (5 yrs and up)
  • Safe indoor setting with crash mats from wall to wall
  • Challenging boulder circuits, natural features, overhangs and ‘the cave’ for pushing your bouldering skills
  • Indoor roped routes for practicing serious outdoor skills (ideal for schools who require roped climbing for GCSE or BTEC qualifications)

 

Crag Rats Climbing Club

Our climbing club for young people and now a women's session too . ‘Crag Rats’ is based in our indoor Climbing Wall with use of the Outdoor Tower and High Ropes when the weather is fit.
