A brief description of a typical childrens climbing party...
Saturday or Sunday 11.00am – 1pm (morning session)
On arrival you will meet your instructor/s who will brief everyone and supply and assist in the fitting of safety equipment. 10-15 min.
Your instructor will then teach everyone how to tie into a climbing rope and then move on to how to belay* (usually with parents only) Parent’s will then be instructed in this individually until all are competent to continue belaying a child under remote supervision.
The session will usually continue until aprox 12.45pm (food served if required) to then give any adults wishing to try climbing themselves. There is no charge for this. Session finishes at 1pm.
See our prices page for details on parties and group booking.
*belay /ing Is the management of the rope thru a device attached to the belayers harness to safeguard the climber.
