Climbing walls are the easiest way to try out climbing – they’re also great fun. There are now over 450+ walls throughout the UK. Some are dedicated to lead climbing (high, with ropes), others bouldering (shorter, with no ropes). Many provide both. All the larger walls offer a range of introduction sessions if you’re starting out. Many also run skills and coaching sessions to help you develop your climbing.
