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!).

Session times: 

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

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.
