There’re a few different types of climbing you can do here at Blue Spider:
Climbing on walls around 3.5 metres high, without the use of ropes or a harness. We set short ‘problems’ on the bouldering walls, and the magic is in figuring out how to get to the top! We take safety seriously, so our boulder mats are there to ensure a soft landing.
If you don’t have anyone to climb with, and want to take on our big walls, the Auto-Belays are there for you. An Auto-Belay is basically an automatic rope, and will catch you if you fall, and lower you gently back to the ground. This means you can climb completely independently, with no need for a climbing partner. You can learn to use these independently.
Climbing with ropes is one of the more popular types of climbing. With the help of harnesses and belay devices, you can climb up our 10 metre walls. Of course, you’ll need a partner who knows what they’re doing! Learn to climb on ropes by clicking the ‘Learn to Climb’ button below.
Take the next step and learn to lead climb! This type of climbing is what you’ll see people doing outside on bolted routes!
You’ll need to choose which course is right for you, and what type of climbing you’ll be doing.
We recommend a Beginners Course as the fastest and most cost-effective way of becoming an all-round experienced climber. After the course, you’ll have the skills to boulder, auto-belay and top rope climb independently, without supervision. There are other options too, which you can explore via the links below:
