    Indoor climbing induction sessions at the West Mainland Leisure Centre are starting Tuesday 22 May.

    Great for
    • Anyone new to climbing
    • Anyone who hasn’t climbed for a long time and wants a refresher on key safety and techniques
    • Adults who don’t want to climb themselves, but want to belay for their bairns

    1:4 instructor ratio. 3 x 1 hour sessions.
    Adult and youth induciton:
    • Correctly fit and adjust your harness
    • Basic climbing knots, tying in,
    • Using karabiners and belay devices
    • Learn to safely belay and lower a climber
    • General indoor climbing safety, including bouldering and traversing
    • Learn basic warm-up routines
    • Learn basic climbing terminology and etiquette (good manners and safe practices!)
    • Gain confidence and capability in their own climbing and belaying ability
    Once participants are confident in their own skills (and an instructor agrees) they can complete a registered climber form, and use the wall on any public session.
