Want to try climbing?

If you’ve never climbed before – or if it’s been a really long time since you hit the walls – your first port of call will probably be a taster session. We run climbing taster sessions in North Devon on a daily basis for novice climbers who want to give this thrilling activity a go for the first time.

Our climbing taster sessions run over 1.5 hours, with your time split between climbing on the ropes and in our new bouldering centre. Each session is led by one of our qualified instructors, who will introduce you to the basics of indoor climbing while keeping you safe on belay.

All of the equipment you need is included in the price of your session, so just turn up and get climbing!

Due to the nature of roped climbing, the minimum age for a taster session at Rock and Rapid Adventures is 6.

For our climbing taster sessions in Devon, we recommend that you wear comfortable clothing that allows you t0 move freely and comfortably. Trainers are great, although we can provide climbing shoes if needed.

I have already had a taster session, can I do it again?

Yes of course, we have so many challenges on the wall that we can always run each taster session to everyone’s ability – whether it’s your first time, a refresh or a more in-depth climbing lesson. Especially now that we have just opened up a brand new bouldering centre!

Please check out our kids’ climbing clubs, or speak to one of the team who will explain the next steps.

I am an adult and want to take up climbing, what is my next step?

Your next step would be to book an induction course with us – this will teach you all the skills to use the centre as a competent individual. After this, you can progress to a four-week improver course, which has no set dates and is designed to suit your needs. Check out our courses page for more information!
