COMMON QUESTIONS:

WHAT CLOTHING SHOULD WE WEAR?

We recommend T shirt, fleece and stretchy loose fitting trousers or track suit bottoms.
We do not recommend shorts as the climbing surface have a rough texture and knees can get rubbed.
All climbers wear our indoor climbing shoes which are designed to make climbing easy and fun (they are made of similar rubber to racing car tyres, to give the maximum grip)!.
If climbers have long hair or glasses we recommend a tie back.
Please leave jewellery, watches etc at home (as they will need to be removed before climbing).

CAN I CHANGE A BOOKING TIME / DATE OR GROUP SIZE?

Yes, call us to check that your new date or time is available.
Yes , again call us to let us know as soon as your group size changes, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible as staff will have been booked for your session and if additional staff are required this can be difficult at short notice.
