Due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic, we are not taking any bookings for supervised climbing sessions.
If you want to keep up to date with developments, please opt into our information emails.

What is it?

A 60-minute fun session that is for children aged 4-16, though predominantly ages up to 14 attend this session. Great for a mixed aged party that want to climb together for the first time or just in a casual supervised session. HighballPlay predominantly uses the auto belays and top roping stations, bouldering is down to the discretion of the instructor and the age of the group attending (bouldering requires a minimum age of 8).

Who is it for?

Complete beginners
Shy/nervous children
Groups of friends of children/siblings

Children looking to have their first experience of climbing, or have had a junior taster and are wanting to take part in a longer session.

FamilyPlay is our family fun session! A similar format to HighballPlay but with parents and children! For this session, at least one parent and one under 18 must be booked onto the session.

HIGHBALLPLAY : Frequently Asked Questions

No. Our Intro Courses are perfect for both newcomers and those with previous climbing experience who want a more comprehensive refresher. If you have never climbed before, however, it may be beneficial to book a Taster Session first.

Depending on what type of session you are taking part in will determine how many climbs you get. With our Taster Sessions we will give you as many opportunities as possible to climb, our more instructional sessions will focus on safety and techniques alongside climbing. It all depends on how confident you feel too, our instructors won't force you to the top but gently encourage to where you are comfortable.

We have a mixture of climbs and challenges suitable for all ages. If you want to get to the top, we’re sure you will be able to. Our instructors will not push you or your children further than they want to go; ‘the top’ will come with confidence.

We have a maximum working ratio of 1 to 8, however, most courses operate on a maximum 1 to 6. We feel this offers increased value for money and time on the wall. Ultimately, instructors have the final say and will make changes if they feel necessary.
