Climbing

Sports Facilities

Climbing

We have a state of the art 11m climbing wall and a bouldering room to offer climbing courses, taster or refresher sessions, kids clubs and assessments.

Climbing Assessment

Already an experienced climber and able to put on a harness, tie in, and belay safely? Have an instructor sign you off as having the ability to use the climbing wall in a safe and competent manner.

Running for just half an hour, an assessment is mandatory before gaining access to the climbing facilities.

Assessed climbers are eligible to sign in up to two non-assessed buddies aged 5 years and above.

No teaching or assistance will be provided during Assessments. These are purely to assess your current ability to use the wall safely.

During the summer, please contact rgusportenquiries@rgu.ac.uk to arrange an assessment or for more information.

  • Cost £8.30 – includes a free climb afterwards if you successfully pass your assessment

Bouldering room

Why not try something a little different and get yourself on our bouldering wall. Anyone can come in and use our bouldering wall, all you have to do is activate the free ‘bouldering registration’ membership and follow the steps to complete the waiver form:

Bouldering registration can also be done in person at RGU SPORT Reception.

You will then be able to use the bouldering room by signing in and paying at reception.
