Children’s Climbing

Children are born climbers so it’s fun to tap into and develop that natural ability. With a dedicated climbing crag and environment in West Lane Quarry, we can plan sessions and activities to suit all levels, from complete beginners to more experienced climbers. We develop skills and confidence through games, use of other equipment such as ropes from trees and caving ladders, low-level rock exercises as well as vertical climbing on the rock. We also use other locations for variety and differing levels depending on the needs of the group so this will be discussed at the time of booking.

Climbing is not just a physical sport – it requires and develops resiliency, responsibility, problem-solving, analysis, patience, focus and concentration. In addition to their own climbing, participants learn to take responsibility for their partners too, which involves developing a good level of trust, communication and teamwork between them. Seeing the natural support and encouragement they give each other is just one of the great things about our climbing sessions!

We offer climbing parties for birthdays or other occasions, single half day ‘taster’ experiences, one of the activities as part of a whole day adventure package, or a series of group sessions to develop confidence, competence and experience. Look at the youth groups section for further information or contact us to discuss your needs.
