This session is for climbers new to the sport, or new to indoor bouldering centres. The session introduces the basic safety and climbing skills to use our centres.
Note: we have temporarily suspended the sign in of novices by members. All beginners must book onto an induction session. Read more about our Covid-19 measures here.

- sessions are around 45 minutes in length. You can continue to climb afterwards with a visit time of up to a maximum of three hours in total (due to current restrictions).
