Climbing for kids

Kids love climbing! We welcome families to come and climb together for a session and you can hire all the equipment you need to stay safe and have a good time. Competent Climbers can belay under 16s on our main wall as well.


  • Dedicated Bouldering and Traverse area

    Our dedicated kids climbing area is suitable for children as young as age 3 (as long as they fit a helmet). We have a mini cave and slide as well to keep them amused for hours and the area is completely matted and separate from the main bouldering area next to the cafe - so you can relax with a fresh coffee and watch the action unfold.

  • Auto Belay and Tower

    For the more adventerous kids, our tower provides a real challenge, requiring skill and courage to scale the 12-15m peak!

    Competent Climbers can belay up to 2 novice/children anytime during our opening times, or you can book a place on our regular Instructor Led Sessions.

  • Climbing Pillars

    We also have NEW climbing pillars with loads of dedicated kids climbs and routes set on four separate top ropes. You can watch from the cafe OR why not pop upstairs onto our viewing balcony and watch them climb past you to the ceiling!

  • Academy and Specialist Sessions

    Our Rock Starz group for age 4 - 8 is a great session for those who have the climbing bug.
    We are also a NICAS Awarding centre Levels 1 to 4 and use this as a framework for our academy session - The Ascenders.
    You can also climb a tree and learn to Abseil in the warmer months!

Opening Times

Instructor Led Sessions

Activities for children begin with our Kids Sessions and Mini Rockers sessions, as a great way to encourage their love for the sport. These fun and exciting sessions can be enjoyed by complete beginners, or those who just want a taster of what climbing is all about.

The Rock Starz and Ascenders Clubs are our climbing academy for kids to learn new skills and build confidence. Find out more HERE.
