CLIMBING INDUCTIONS

If you are a novice climber and would like to climb unsupervised in The Climbing Works, Unit E and The Mini Works, you can complete an Adult/Junior induction.

Once you have completed this session you will be officially classed as an Adult or Junior Climber. This means you can climb independently across all three centres whenever you want (within opening hours of course!). 

Who for? anyone aged 14 or older with little to no bouldering experience.

Session times: 

Monday: 7:30pm - 9:15pm / Sunday: 10:30am - 11:45 am

Prices: Adults: £20 / 14 - 17 years: £15

For 14 - 17 year olds, a parent/legal guardian must fill out the Junior Climber waiver form before the induction.

For 14 - 15 year olds, a parent/legal guardian must be present at the start of the induction.

We offer private inductions, email info@climbingworks.com or call 0114 250 9990 to book.
