A note for first timers

If you haven’t climbed before, you will need to book an Induction (details below) for your first visit to Stronghold


Be accompanied by an experienced climber who must complete a supervisor assessment, which will allow them to supervise up to 2 novices or under 18s (1:1 ratio under 6 years old) inside Stronghold .

After this first visit, you’ll be free to climb at Stronghold on your own whenever you want.


For first-time climbers, we recommend you start with our Induction Session. This one-hour session will introduce you to the basic skills you need to boulder safely. You will learn how to move around the climbing wall, how to differentiate between routes and grades and the basic technique. It’s an ideal session for first-timers and will help build confidence in the bouldering environment.
