Book a climb

All climbers must pre-book their climb.


  • Our usual Day Pass rates still apply, but climbing time is currently limited:
    • Main Area - 2 hours per session.
    • Boulder Zoo/Boulder Play - 90 mins per session at the weekend & during school holidays, 2 hours per session during term time. 
    • This also applies to Ultimate Pass holders and Pre-paid Pass holders.
  • Booking slots are generated on a rolling basis, currently 2 weeks in advance.
  • To ensure that proper social distancing is maintained we have limited the number of climbers in each area.
  • In line with the government's ‘rule of six’, group sizes are limited to 6 climbers when booking.
  • We're taking payment at the time of booking to make checking in easier and to reduce contact times with staff.
  • We will not be accepting cash on the premises; cards and contactless only please.
  • If our capacity allows, you may be allowed to stay past your booked slot.
  • Please don't arrive any earlier than 15 minutes before your booked time slot.
  • Due to limited capacity, we currently can't welcome spectators, although for supervision purposes, one adult may accompany each child that is climbing.
Supervision for climbers under 18 years

To maintain a safe environment, adults must closely supervise their children at all times.

Our supervision ratios are:

  • For children under 5 years = 1 adult to 1 child.
  • For children aged 5-10 years = 1 adult to 2 children.
  • For children 11 and over = 1 adult to 3 children.

If you have children climbing in different areas (Main Area, Zoo or Play), each child will need an accompanying adult for each area
