Unsupervised Junior Assessments

For all unsupervised junior climbers at Stronghold Climbing Centre, a form must be filled out by a parent or legal guardian and checked by a member of staff. The climber will need to undergo a short theory assessment with a Stronghold team-member to gauge his/her climbing ability.

For 14 and 15-year-old climbers, a parent/legal guardian is required on site during all the process. For climbers aged 16 and 17, the parent can sign the form off site or give consent over the phone to a member of staff.
