what to expect
We're here to assist you through your introduction to climbing! Our friendly staff will help you fit your shoes, take you through the gym and show you what you need to know! Everything from safety to basic information about how climbing works, our staff is here to assist you through the whole experience!
what to bring
Wear comfy clothes! Don't forget, climbing is all about movement! Skirts, dresses and anything of that sort should not be worn. So you'll also want to stray from restrictive clothing like jeans, tight shirts and jackets!
That's okay, you can't climb all the time! We've got free WiFi and plenty of room to relax or get some work done while you wait for friends. But remember, if you're here with kids, please keep an eye on them!
"I’d never climbed before so took my family and we friend the introduction to climbing course and we loved it!!! Tom who taught us kept us all engaged and most of all we all felt safe. Even my 5 year old managed to get quite high up on the wall. Tom encouraged him by singing the spider-man theme song to him.
Great experience, will definitely go back."
