Outdoor Taster Sessions

White Angles

Try climbing outdoors

During the summer months, TCA offers outdoor taster sessions to give you the chance to experience real rock climbing at one of our brilliant crags in the Southwest.

Avon Gorge

Situated in the heart of Bristol, this famous city cliff provides a perfect introduction to climbing. Sea Walls catches the evening sun and is quick and easy to reach. If you book a taster session at the Gorge, we’ll let you know where to meet us!

Wyndcliff Quarry

Less than an hour from Chippenham, in the beautiful Wye Valley, Wyndcliff is a set of sunny crags with amazing views over the Severn estuary. This is a fantastic location for those who are looking to take their first steps from indoor climbing to outdoor rock climbing. Your instructor will set up top-ropes, allowing you to climb as you would at The Arc. There are grades to suit all abilities, so whether you want to try something easy or hard, there are enough routes to keep you busy all day.

These sessions are for those aged 18+. For more information on our outdoor courses please email
