Everyone who wishes to climb here at Stronghold will need to register before their first visit. You can pre-register online which will speed up the process and allow for more climbing time.
If you still feel unsure about your climbing ability after watching the video, you should book an Induction, a private session or come with an experienced adult climber who will need to complete a Supervisor Assessment.
If you have never climbed before you will need to come on an Induction: we offer these for individuals and families. Both can be booked online here.
If you are under 18 or you are planning to bring a child with you to the centre, please refer to our Under 18 Policy here.
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.
Novice climbers or under-18 climbers
If you wish to introduce a friend to bouldering and bring them to Stronghold for their first climbing experience, you will be expected to demonstrate your knowledge of climbing to a Stronghold Climbing Centre staff member and pass a Supervisor Assessment test, comprising of 14 questions relating to your experience.
Our Supervisor system is in place for your own safety, that of the individual you are supervising, and for the safety of other users of the centre.
If you are planning to bring a child or young person under the age of 18 with you to the centre, please refer to our Under 18 Policy here.
