Youth Climbing

Children and teenagers are welcome to climb at Stronghold, either with an experienced adult or on one of instructed sessions. Experienced climbers, aged between 14 and 17, can also complete a Unsupervised Junior Assessment which allows them to climb independently.

We have a dedicated children’s area where youngsters can learn the basics and grow in confidence, before progressing to the larger walls downstairs.

On our Rockers Club, under-18s will be taught how to climb by one of our instructors through engaging fun, games, and challenges. The sessions run every Saturday and Sunday, as well as throughout the school holidays.

If you wish to come climbing as a family for the first time, you will need to book a family induction. Click here to view our great deals on entry for families.

Please note, all under-18s must be accompanied by an experienced adult while climbing at Stronghold. Each adult can supervise two juniors over the age of six, or one junior under the age of six. Click here to view our Under-18 policy.

All of our sessions are available to book below.
