School & College Groups
Bring your students to The Climbing Station for a one-off taster or a climbing course. We can cater for large groups (in the past we’ve managed groups of 30!) but with the current COVID pandemic, we need to evaluate the situation fully before we can commit to any particularly large groups. Please call on 01509 217636 to talk through any plans you may have regarding this.
Why Climbing and Bouldering?
Climbing and bouldering inspire problem-solving skills, challenge memory, as well as developing agility, balance and coordination.
Bouldering is a form of climbing usually practised on small rock boulders, or at indoor walls. Bouldering is carried out at lower heights than roped climbing. The boulderer is able to climb down from the wall (so ropes and harnesses are not required).
Roped climbing is usually done with two people, one climbing, and one holding the rope and lowering the climber (the belayer). Belaying techniques are a key part of the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS).
Climbing can be casual or competitive…
