Learn to Climb – Adults Course

Would you like to learn a new sport or hobby?

Perhaps you have had a go at climbing and are not sure how to carry on?

Or don’t have a buddy to come climbing with?

Climbing presents lots of fascinating physical and mental challenges, as well as being sociable and friendly. It’s also a great way of keeping fit too.

Why not join our beginners climbing course?

This five-week course will give you the confidence and skills to climb indoors safely. You can come on your own and meet other beginners to climb with. This could be the start of not just a new hobby but new friendships too! We follow the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) so you will gain a recognised qualification.

What’s involved?

The course includes all the following:

  • Five sessions with a fully qualified instructor
  • 12-month membership of Kong Adventure
  • Hire of equipment (shoes, harness, belay device)
  • 15% discount to buy your own equipment from our shop
  • Hot or cold drink at each session

All this for £100 (NICAS logbooks cost an extra £7.50)
