Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to join the club to attend club night?

If you are an independent climber with your own gear and require no instruction or supervision, then no. However if you are new to climbing, we do require you to be a member to provide 3rd party liability insurance from the BMC. This ensures that all parties are insured if an incident occurs as a result of using our gear or receiving advice or instruction from our members.

Membership starts at £10 for 3 months, or £25 for the year. Find out more here: Become a Member.

Can my child come along?

We do not accept children under 15. If your child is between 15 and 18 we will need a parent or guardian present who shall be responsible for them at all times during the session.

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Providing you are a member (see above), the club provides all the equipment you will need to take part in the session. The only equipment we don’t provide is climbing shoes, but if you don’t have any of your own, just wear some comfortable, well fitting trainers. Make sure you also bring plenty to eat and drink and dress appropriately for the weather.

Do I need any previous experience?

Not at all. We have experienced members and volunteers on hand teach you the skills and techniques to climb safely.

  1. Looking forward to seeing y’all tomorrow. I shall need to borrow a harness, if that is ok. Thanks

  2. Hi, I’m signing up to be a member but my friend just told me that we need to RSVP before 12. I know it’s after 12 but by any chance can I tag along? I’m an absolute beginner who hasn’t rock climbed since I was a kid.

    1. Hi Lucy, that’s fine I’ll add you to the list. We’ll have equipment and members on hand to help out. See you later!
