13 - 16 years

For 13 - 16 year olds, Junior Members and non-members


Weekly Sessions

CW Youth Club:

Fridays  7.00pm - 8.30pm

This club is for Junior Members and those looking at becoming a Junior Member. The aim of these sessions is for young climbers to meet other like-minded people of their own age who they can climb with.

Those who are 13 years old or not yet Junior Members will need to sign up to the coaches session, ideally this should be done in advance as there are limited spaces. 

Junior Members: you can decide on the night whether they would like to participate on the coaches session for the evening or whether  to climb independently with other Junior Members.


  • £10 for non Junior Members
  • £6 (normal entrance fee) for Junior Members


There are 2 ways that 14+ years can become Junior Members. If you already have a lot of prior climbing experience and are a Junior Member of another wall then you can complete a Junior Assessment. If you do not have another prior climbing experience then a Junior Induction can be completed or you can participate on Youth Club with the coaches for 6 weeks to gain the experience needed.

Junior assessments

Young adults aged 14-18 yrs old who are experienced climbers can become Junior Members of The Climbing Works allowing them to climb unsupervised. To do so, they must first undertake an assessment with a Climbing Works instructor who will assess their climbing experience and decide whether they are eligible to become a Junior Member. (All under 18s must be accompanied to the assessment with a legal parent or guardian)

Assessments can be completed on Youth Club sessions, alternatively ask at reception for more details and available times for assessments.

Junior Inductions

This is the session for all those who are aged 14 - 17 with no experience of bouldering who wish to come and use The Climbing Works unsupervised. The course consists of one and a half hours tuition with one of our qualified coach, and focuses on how to use the climbing walls safely. This course is obligatory if you would like to use The Climbing Works but have never climbed before. Once you have done this session, you are free to use the centre whenever you like unsupervised.
