What do I have to bring?

Just bring yourself, sun protection and some comfy clothes to climb in and will provide the rest!

Do I need experience?

We do recommend that you have at least tried indoor climbing before, but you don’t need to be crushing the hard grades! We will set up a variety of different climbs, but we suggest that you can climb a grade 16 in the gym to get the most out of the day.
