Why you are you a great place for educational visits?
Our staff work directly with the climbers to help the climbers to achieve what they believed was impossible and go away feeling great about themselves and the group.

What does a typical educational visit include?
A typical visit includes a 30-minute safety brief where one of our qualified climbing instructors will harness you up and show you how to climb our walls. After this, you then will get a 1 hour climb on all our climbing elements. For an educational visit, we don’t normally open the Leap of Faith which incurs an additional charge, however if prearranged this can be accommodated. We can adapt the climbing to include group and team challenges our individuals needing special attention.

Teachers/ helpers who isn’t climbing gets the option to become a ‘Clipper’. We will train you on how to clip the climbers on to the belay system.

We can have up to 35 climbers in the arena per session (normally 1hr) and we have seating facilities for up to another 90, who are able to watch the action.
