So it’s your first time climbing. First of all, don’t be nervous as we are here to help.
THE BASICS >>
Stronghold is a bouldering only indoor climbing centre. This means there are no ropes or harnesses involved at any of our centres. As a sport, bouldering is all about freedom of movement and it’s a lot easier to get into than you think.
Whether you are bored of the normal gym or you just want to try something new, this sport is all about having fun (while accidentally getting fit). With minimal equipment needed (just a pair of climbing shoes you can hire from us) you’ll be picking up the techniques and lingo in no time.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO BEFORE YOU VISIT >>
As a first time climber you don’t need prior experience to boulder at Stronghold. You just need to watch our induction video below and complete an Unsupervised Adult AOR form prior to visiting the centre.
You will be expected to pass the safety questions at the reception so be sure to take note on the video and form!
*Please note that there is a one-off £3 registration fee for all first time, 14yrs+, customers to Stronghold. This will only be paid once the registration process is completed at Stronghold reception*
Our lockers operate on a padlock system – please bring your own padlock if you wish to use a locker. There are padlocks available to purchase in our shop.
