2h15min Competent Climbing session - £12.50 / £10 - Students / OAP
This unsupervised session is for anyone with previous rock climbing experience. Guests will need to complete a quick competency test before being signed off. You will need to show your ability to tie in with a re-threaded figure 8 knot, and show your belay technique using a belay/braking device. Competent climbers can be responsible for up to 3 others. This session includes access to bouldering rooms.
Bouldering Only - £10/ £9 - Students / OAP
No experience required here. Climb without ropes in our bouldering rooms. This session is not instructed and kids under 12 need to be supervised at all times. This session includes access to the calisthenics weight room (no unauthorised u16s in weight room)
Please bear in mind that bouldering is inherently a difficult activity that requires some strength and skill to master. We have endeavoured to make it as accessible as possible. Younger children might still find this difficult. Please make our staff aware on your arrival if you would like any guidance on how to get started.

At The Ordinary Climbers we offer the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) as an introduction to climbing and to provide a gateway to learning more and developing a love for the sport.
The key aim is to provide a safe introduction to climbing for anyone aged 7 years and up. Those who progress through to the higher levels also start to look wider and learn more about the history, ethics and styles of both indoor and outdoor climbing.
This is a nationally-recognised scheme that helps to standardise the teaching and coaching of climbing in a structured manner, whilst providing lots of fun too.
This award is recognised by the three English GCSE and A-level exam boards (AQA, Edexcel and OCR) as a means to teach climbing, hence candidates who have passed Level 3 meet the GCSE requirements (though the exam syllabi do not map exactly, NICAS Level 3 is a great indication of a climber's ability to gain high marks).

10h30 - 12h00

18h15 - 19h00
Yoga and rock climbing both involve mind and body working in unison. They both require mental focus and physical control, and getting to grips with your strengths and body movements.
Both climbing and yoga involve challenging positions (some say climbing is like performing vertical yoga poses!) and focusing the mind - it’s key that you connect with the moment in order to maintain that difficult yoga position, or focus on your strategy to make it to the top of the wall.
This session is free of charge to anyone who is booked in to a climbing session running at this time.
Alternatively, for yoga only... book below.
Our gym is available for parties, whatever the occasion.
We have options for groups big and small.
We don't provide food but you are more than welcome to bring along anything you would like/order in etc.
