#Junior Climbing Sessions

We have recently been successful in a Sport England funding bid to enable us to start up some Junior 'Learn to Climb' sessions. If you are aged between 11 and 25 years old and wanting to get into climbing then this is an ideal opportunity. Aswell as getting to climb and have fun you will also learn all the ropework and follow level 1 of the NICAS scheme.

Each climber will receive a FREE chalk bag, chalk ball, t-shirt and stickers.
