This is the next step after bouldering at Nottingham Climbing Centre. If you are a registered boulderer, take advantage of our comprehensive introduction to top rope climbing. This session will cover the equipment and skills required to get into roped climbing. This is a session for people who are 18 and over.

Climbing Intro (2 hrs, £20pp)

This session is aimed at those who want to get into climbing, either for the first time or or after a taster.

Family Taster (2 hrs, £15pp)

Thinking of trying a new activity with the kids? Climbing is a very exciting and fun family activity!

This is a highly variable session depending on what you need! Haven't climbed since the first lockdown and need to refresh your belay skills? Want an instructor to give you some tips and tricks?
