New Climbers

If you have never climbed before then you’ve come to the right place!  We offer an induction course for new climbers by one of our experienced coaches. We will go through the basics of climbing, centre rules and falling safely. This is perfect for those who have no experience or for those who wish to refresh themselves on climbing.

You can also be signed for and supervised by someone who has registered as an independent climber at Fenrock.

Kids

To keep everyone as safe as possible at Fenrock we have some strict supervision guidelines.

Supervision must be provided by an adult (18+) who has attended one of the induction sessions or who has registered at the centre.

  • 6-7 each child MUST be supervised on the mats 1:1 by an adult who is an experienced climber.
  • 8-11 each child MUST be supervised on the mats 1:1 by an adult.
  • 12-15 must have at least one adult present for three children.
  • 16-17 will need an adult present for the induction and then may climb unsupervised afterwards.

Experienced Climbers

If you consider yourself an experienced climber and are planning your first visit to Fenrock you will just need to fill out a waiver form and pass our competency test.

If you are bringing a family/friend who hasn’t climbed before as long as you pass the competency test and register at the centre then you can supervise them on the wall.

FAQ

Can I just turn up?

To climb at Fenrock you will need to ether be an experienced climber or have attended one of our induction sessions. This is the same for any age range but if you are looking to bring children then please take a minute to look at our supervision guidelines to avoid disappointment.

What is bouldering?

Bouldering is a low level form of rock climbing where ropes and harnesses are replaced with safety matting. Our wall is a maximum height of 4.5 meters and provides climbs for all experience levels from VB – V7+ (font 4-7a)
The best part about bouldering is the freedom to move around the center without having to worry about ropes or finding a buddy to belay you, this makes it one of the most accessible forms of climbing and great for both children and adults alike!

What should I bring?

We recommend flexible clothing such as standard gym wear. Chalk and shoes are available to hire or you can bring your own! If you are spectating we advise a warm jumper or coat depending on the weather as our facility is not heated.

Are there age restrictions?

We have strict supervision guidelines at Fenrock to make sure everyone is as safe as possible.

  • 6-7 each child MUST be supervised on the mats 1:1 by an adult who is an experienced climber.
  • 8-11 each child MUST be supervised on the mats 1:1 by an adult.
  • 12-15 must have at least one adult present for three children.

We pride our selves on having a great community at Fenrock however if you are looking to climb on a quieter time then try 2pm – 6pm weekdays and after 4pm on a weekend.
