Membership & Prices
To become a member of The Climbing Works you must have prior experience climbing at an indoor wall and be a confident climber. It doesn't matter what grade you climb, just that you're happy in an indoor environment.
If you're visiting us for the first time and wish to become a member then you can download the registration form and fill it in beforehand to speed up the process. Please read the Conditions of Use first.
If you're above 14 but under 18, you can also become a junior member of The Climbing Works but first you must pass a Under 18 climbing assessment. Please call us on 0114 250 9990 to find out more details and book an assessment. You can download the U18 registration form ( which must be filled out by a parent or legal guardian) here. Please read the Conditions of Use first. (All under 18s must be accompanied to the assessment with a legal parent or guardian)
Children under 14 can climb at The Climbing Works ONLY under the supervision of either an instructor or a supervising adult who MUST be a member of The Climbing Works. You can read more about children and The Climbing Works here.
If you've never climbed before, you can complete an Adult Induction course at The Climbing Works that will cover everything you need to know to boulder safely.
