Joining the Club and use of the Climbing wall:

Beginners (or those that are a bit rusty) need to be guested in by a mentor and shown the necessary skills before signing competency and being let loose on the wall unsupervised.
If you are an experienced climber contact us to arrange an induction to the climbing wall and a demonstration of safe practice.
We can also offer induction training for novices to enable them to start climbing with safety and good practice in mind.  
Please ask at the wall or e-mail us.
