This low intensity learning course is suitable for all adults of any age and ability. Your skills and knowledge will be assessed during and at the end of the session to ensure you are safe to come and climb on without instruction, whether just for fun or as a start to progressing to our Lead Climbing course.

On completing the Beginners Course you can return to Alter Rock and climb during our opening times. On your next visit or subsequent visits you may need some help or advice which our friendly staff will always be happy to give.
