Why Start Climbing?

Climbing is an indoor and outdoor sport, that can be done all year round, and all around the world. Be it out in the hills with friends, or traveling the globe on the competition circuit, climbing has something to offer to everyone.

Is It safe?

With the correct training and equipment, climbing is safe. The very clear and present risk we perceive with climbing means that when people climb they are very conscious of safety.

Can I Climb?

From an early age we were all climbers. Some continued their passion in climbing, and others come back to it later in life. If you think climbing might be the sport for you, please contact your local climbing wall and ask their advice on how to begin. 


When you first try climbing you should not need to buy any specialist equipment. The climbing wall, outdoor instructor or club should be able to provide you with the equipment you need to enjoy yourself and stay safe. As you progress, a whole world of opportunities will open up!

Indoor Climbing Walls

Booking in with an indoor climbing wall for a taster session is an ideal way to see if the sport is for you.
