First Time At Boulder Central

 

New to Climbing?

Age 4 or under?

We have a kids area for those who are too young to climb on the big walls. This designated traverse wall is a great introduction to climbing with plenty of routes to have a go at and activities to keep you occupied all day. With easy climbs and harder climbs, this is the perfect place for those young monkeys who are already climbing up the walls at home!

 

Price: £3.50 (off peak), £4.00 (on peak)

Duration: As long as you want!

Requirements: Any climbers must be signed in at reception by their adult supervisor.

 

Aged 5-6?

Those climbers under 7 years of age and over 5 years may only climb on the big walls under the supervision of an instructor. There are two session types available: kids clubs are a great way to learn some of the basics of climbing while ensuring you are safe while doing so. It is a great way to meet lots of new friends too with six spaces per club! Alternatively, if you have up to four participants keen to have a go at bouldering then a family session might be the one for you! These are private sessions with an instructor who will aim to get everyone climbing around the centre, having fun and climbing safely.

 

Kids club:

Price: £8

Duration: 1 hour

Requirements: Parent consent form must be completed by the parent of the participating child prior to the session starting. If the parent has not completed this form then the child will not be able to participate. Parent consent forms can be found here.

Restrictions: Minimum age 5, Maximum age 13.

 

Family session:

Price: £30/£45

Duration: 1 hour/1hour 30mins

Requirements: Parent consent form must be completed by the parent of the participating child prior to the session starting. If the parent has not completed this form then the child will not be able to participate. Parent consent forms can be found here.

Restrictions: Minimum age 5

 

Aged 7-13?

For those a little older there are three options available. The kids club and family sessions (as outlined above for ages 5-6) are both great options for those kids who want to have a go at bouldering as a one off or for those wanting to meet new friends in the clubs. An alternative option is for them to be supervised by an adult member. This could be a parent or a family friend who is a member at Boulder Central. For a member to supervise a child under 18, then parental consent is required by completing this form. If the parent is not present or hasn’t signed the form then Boulder Central staff will be required to call the participant’s parents to confirm that consent is given. To become a member at boulder Central then you must have bouldered a minimum of three times in the last year or complete an induction at the centre. Details for inductions can be found here. Children can participate in an induction with an adult but must have a completed parent consent form to participate.

 

Child supervision:

Price: £6 (off peak), £7 (on peak), £3 shoe hire (please be aware that climbing shoes must be worn at the centre)

Duration: As long as you want!

Requirements: Adult members can supervise up to two participants only. Supervision guidance must be observed. A supervision form must be completed with parental permission.

Restrictions: Minimum age 7.

 

Aged 14-17?

At this age, a little more freedom is often wanted. So why not become a member at Boulder Central to be able to climb independently. Becoming a member is easy. Book in for an induction with a member of our great team and learn how to boulder safely. To complete an induction, a parent must be present to be shown the centre, and sign an induction form to allow the young climber to become a member. Further details for inductions can be found here.

 

Induction:

Price: £15 (includes year membership and shoe hire)

Duration: 45-minute induction and then climb for as long as you want!

Requirements: Parent must be present on date of induction to complete necessary forms.

Restrictions: Minimum age 14

 

Aged 18+?

Are you over 18 and wanting to climb for the first time? Then an induction is for you! Giving you and introduction to bouldering and teaching you to climb independently, our team at Boulder Central will give you everything you need to become a member.

 

Induction:

Price: £15 (includes year membership and shoe hire)

Duration: 45-minute induction and then climb for as long as you want!

Requirements: A willing soul!

Restrictions: Minimum age 14

 

Climbed Before?

Adults

If you have previous experience of climbing at an indoor wall you can become a member without an induction. If you’re visiting us for the first time, you can download our registration form along with our Terms and Conditions in order to go over the membership requirements. You can also download them and fill them in beforehand to speed up the membership process.

Aged 14-17

If you're aged 14 – 17 and have experience of indoor climbing, you can become a junior member of Boulder Central once you have filled our junior membership form. There will be an added verbal assessment as you sign up to check your competency. Please note that a parent or guardian must be present during the assessment process. From then on you may climb without their supervision.

Aged 7-13

Children under 14 can climb in the main arena at Boulder Central ONLY under the supervision of either an instructor or a supervising adult who MUST be a member of Boulder Central. If you are a member you can download a junior supervision form here.

Aged 6 or under

We have a designated kids area for young kids. This can be used at any time you can just turn up with your child for climbing here. We also have a suggested time on a Saturday for younger kids to climb and play together.
