If you've never climbed before we’ll provide a quick induction. If you're bringing children but don't intend to climb yourself, you'll still need to come to an induction to ensure you understand the dangers of the wall and how to keep your children safe. If you've climbed before we’ll ask some questions about your experience. Don't be offended if we recommend an induction, it’s purely to ensure everyone is safe.
At FREEKLIME we offer a free induction if you are not visited climbing or bouldering centres before! One of the ‘FREEKS’ will walk you around the centre and show you where to start with the ‘boulder problems’, what good bouldering practice is and any do’s & don’ts. You don’t need to book an induction, just simply turn up on the day and a FREEK will be more than happy to help!
You don’t need to be fit or super strong to start climbing. You’ll find climbs (problems) you can do on your first visit and the more you climb the stronger you’ll become. Remember to warm up beforehand to minimise the risk of injury. Be sure to ask for guidance and we’ll be happy to help!
No, turn up when you like and stay as long as you want. We also run a range of adult/kids classes, we advise booking in advance to avoid missing out.
Comfortable clothes. Shoe hire is £3 and chalk’s just £2.
Bouldering isn’t about climbing high. The wall is only 4.2m at its highest point and while your hands may be at the top, your feet are unlikely to be more than 3m off the ground. We have crash mats throughout and can teach you to land safely to minimise the risk of injury. As you gain confidence you’ll stop noticing the heights.
At FREEKLIME we have done our best to make bouldering as safe as possible, adhering to best health & safety practice wherever possible. This waiver outlines the potential risks associated with bouldering and how you can minimise such risks.You can sign our waiver ahead of your visit by clicking here.
