Refresher Climbing Class

If you’ve climbed in the past but need reminding of the process, then join us for the refresher course where we recap equipment use, tying into the rope, belaying methods and safety.

Taster Class

A taster session is great for those who would like to get an idea of what indoor climbing involves. The hour-long class will consist of learning basic skills such as fitting a harness, tying a figure of eight knot and belaying, you'll then do some bouldering and top roping.
