We will take you through all the basics you need to know to get started in a safe coached environment.  Start Climbing consists of three sessions; two 1.5 hour tuition sessions and a third 1.5 hour session where you will complete a Climbing Registration enabling you to climb unsupervised.

Dates are available throughout the year, please register your interest at Sport Central reception on 0191 227 4700
