SCHOOL HOLIDAY SESSIONS : Frequently Asked Questions

Bouldering is a style of climbing done up to 4.5 metres without the use of ropes and harnesses, and with crash matting for protection. This popular branch of rock climbing practices climbing moves and problem solving skills to move up the wall and is now an olympic sport!

See above. If you are aged 18+ and are a competent climber, you can supervise guests, including your children. We have specific ratios and more information on supervising guests here.

Only competent adult climbers can supervise beginners. This could be a trained highball instructor on a pre-booked session or, by a friend/family member who has completed registration.  All instructors are trained and can, therefore, manage small groups of people. Independent climbers can only supervise up to 2 guests.
