ADULT climbing lessons

We offer a whole range of lessons to suit – whether you need a taster session to get you going, or an in-depth look at a particular technique in a private lesson. We can also offer longer term blocks of classes for those who want a more comprehensive helping hand with technique, to advance from beginner to intermediate and ever upwards.

Have a look below at the current classes on offer at Canterbury:

Adult Tasters

If you haven’t climbed before, booking on to a taster class is a really good way to get an introduction to the world of bouldering. The one-hour session will be led by a friendly instructor, who will give you some hints and tips on basic technique, point you in the direction of which wall is which and help you understand the colour grading systems.

The best part? Meeting other newer climbers whilst having plenty of laughs.

At just £23 for entry, shoe hire and the instruction this is a brilliant way to get started – and after that, you will hopefully be a climbing convert for life.
