Youth Climbing

We love welcoming young people to Stronghold to enjoy everything climbing has to offer.

Our dedicated children’s area means youngsters can learn the basics and grow in confidence before progressing to the larger walls downstairs. Older kids can also be introduced via instructed sessions, or if they are experienced they can climb independently (after completing an assessment).


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 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, as well as daily throughout the school holidays. We run separate sessions for ages 6-10 and 11+.


For more experienced kids, we offer sessions to help them hone their skills and progress onto harder and more involved climbing. Rockstars is for kids from 6-10 and Rockgods is for those aged 11+.


All of our sessions are available to book below.

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 (who have not completed the Unsupervised Junior Assessment) 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.
