Well, as long as you’re over the age of 14, you can complete a climbing induction to become an independent climber! This will allow you to climb in the centre without an instructor; belaying with a partner or climbing on the autobelay.

On a rock climbing induction, you’ll learn all of the essential skills you need to become a proficient climber, from correctly fitting a harness to tying safety knots and belaying.

Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll be free to register with us as a lifetime member and use the centre independently.

We also offer bouldering inductions for those who’d like to use our bouldering cave independently, and supervision inductions for parents who want to learn to belay their children.

What people say rock and rapid

"Fantastic range of climbs, professional friendly staff"

Rock and Rapid testimonial

We took our 8 year old son for a climbing taster session here today. His instructor Zeb was so friendly and encouraging, giving instruction when needed and also letting Isaac try for himself to build his confidence.

We visited this whole on our holiday on a rainy day, my son enjoyed it so much he wanted to go back so we did. Twice! The staff are super friendly and very knowledgable. We will no doubt be back next year!
