Your Visit

Green Spider is doing everything we can to make your visit as safe as possible. We ask all our visitors to:

  • Wash or Sanitise their hands frequently
  • Please wear a mask at all times when not climbing
  • Where possible arrive for your session ready to climb
  • Adhere to social distancing measures, keeping at least 2 metres apart from other climbers and avoiding busy areas
  • Make sure to check-out when leaving

Whats On

Green Spider will be running a programme of COVID-secure coaching: carefully developed in-line with the latest guidance and restrictions from the government.

This includes:

  • Kids climbing sessions: Termly & Holiday Clubs
  • Family Taster Sessions & Group Taster Sessions including child(ren) and one parent per family
  • Private Coaching
  • Adult and group classes such as our Beginners Course, our Learn to Lead Course and Bouldering Inductions

Please note: while we manage limited capacities climbers only may attend the session; no spectators. Sessions with just children may have one adult chaperone who is not climbing.

Our termly clubs are a very popular way to get your kids climbing regularly! With two types of clubs to choose from, we have something for every child aged 4 and up. 

  • NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme) courses begin at age 7, and participants will work their way through five levels of the scheme, learning how to eventually be an independent and competent climber 
  • Fun Clubs are for kids aged 4+ and are great for confidence building and having a good fun climbing session each week.  

Spring-Summer Term: Please note that the April Term (staring Monday 19th April) is underway. If you would like to book half-termly, or if have any queries about booking, please contact the team: // 01432 277716

We have a great selection of Casual and Holiday Clubs for your kids to enjoy. All of these sessions require no previous climbing experience, so are a great way to experience climbing for the first time. Many people return to these climbing sessions time and time again at the weekends or in school holidays! 

  • Creepy Crawlies: For those aged 4-6 years, this one-hour session is a great way to introduce kids at a young age to climbing. These are small sessions with only 4 participants per instructor. 
  • Arachnids: For kids aged 7-12 years, this session will have up to 6 participants per instructor and is an hour and a half long. These sessions focus on trying a little bit of everything and most importantly, having fun! 
  • Black Widows: For teenagers aged 13-17, this session focuses on having a fun session and giving climbing a go. In an hour and a half, participants will try roped climbing, bouldering and may even have a go on the auto-belays or slackline. 
  • Holiday Day Camp: Climbers aged 7+ can join the Green Spider Crew for one of our fun-packed climbing adventure days! As well as climbing on a variety of walls, your children will also take part in a wide range of fun climbing and non-climbing based activities.

We also run summer one-week NICAS courses.

Suitable for climbers already competent at top-rope climbing.

Our Youth Access Test is for 14-17 year olds who have experienced bouldering, climbing or top roping and now feel ready to use White Spider without the supervision of an Adult or Instructor

Candidates should be confident that they have the skill set to pass the test. There are three tests available, depending on the type of climbing you would like to do.  Choose from Bouldering, Top Roping and Lead Climbing. 

If you need a refresher before taking the test we would recommend booking a private lesson with two people to brush up on your skills.
