The U.A.T 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 as they feel 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.

Had a great Family taster session with my son for his 6th birthday and 3 of his buddies. Joe was very patient with 4 excited, hyper and loud young boys!. He was very calm and encoraging and explained everything really well. The boys had a great day and really enjoyed themselves! Will definitely return the centre. Thank you Joe!
