All our climbing parties experience an hour or an hour and a half of climbing fun, enjoying a mixture of top roping and bouldering. (Check out our Climbing Glossary for help with climbing jargon). Each party starts with a short safety briefing and putting on climbing harnesses and helmets – it’s important all the children understand that they need to do what their instructor tells them. Then they’ll head onto our big walls to climb and finish up with some bouldering and games.
Top roping – climbing our 10m high walls while tied into a harness. While one child is climbing, the others will help with the safety rope as they climb, under full instructor supervision. This means that the majority of children will be actively engaged throughout the session.
Bouldering – is a little different, with no ropes or harnesses required as children climb at a low level over a matted area. This is a fun way to finish up the party with lots of fun and games!
