We’ll get you off the ground and help you scale new heights.
Reach new heights at The Edge Climbing Wall! Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced climber we can offer you an intimate and challenging setting where you will leave every session with a sense of achievement.
Climbing will be available from the 12 April to all existing signed-off climbers including members and pay-as-you-go customers.
You can book your session of up to 3 hours by emailing email@example.com or phoning 01133 435 095.
Sessions can have a maximum of 6 attendees and are broken up into 3 slots. Each slot will allow 1 or 2 climbers on the wall at a time.
Unfortunately you will not initially be able to hire out equipment until restrictions are loosened, therefore, please bring your own equipment.
We will also be providing hand-sanitiser for all climbers.
Our Learn to climb course is for beginners. You’ll complete four 90 minute sessions in consecutive weeks to take you through basic climbing techniques and the necessary ropework. At the end of the course you’ll be able to use the Edge Climbing Wall unattended. No equipment or experience is necessary but if you’re not sure what’s involved, just book a free 30 minute taster session through reception.
One-to-one coaching – Returning Soon
If you want to advance your basic skills and become a more competent climber we offer one-to-one coaching, which works like a personal training session.
Teaching covers: belay procedures, rope work, improving climbing movement techniques and enhancing climber confidence.
To arrange a coaching session contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Belay tests – Returning Soon
If you are an experienced climber and have belayed before you will need to complete a Belay test before using the climbing wall.
The tests are 15 minutes and you will need to demonstrate that you can put on a climbing harness correctly, tie into a rope with an acceptable knot, and then belay someone safely up and down the wall, including arresting a fall. You just need to bring a partner (who need not have any climbing experience) who will do a short, easy climb while we observe you belaying them.
|Student / Staff||£5|
Once you’ve passed the belay test you will be able to use the climbing wall unsupervised.
Belay refresher session – Returning soon
If you have belayed before but would like to refresh your memory before committing to the test, then book a refresher session. As for the test, you will need a partner, and the session will last for the full 30 minutes.
