Refresher 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, a refresher 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 from a maximum of 2 households.
