ROPED CLUBS AND COURSES

BEGINNERS’ COURSES

If you would like to learn how to rope climb, we run the beginners’ courses bookable below. No prior experience is required.

 

YOUNG ADULT CLIMBERS’ CLUB 15+

If you are a competent top-rope climber, join our weekly instructor-led session. It’s a perfect way to meet other climbers and make friends.

New to climbing? If you haven’t climbed before, you will first need to complete one of our Beginners’ Courses (see below). Under 16s book the Youth Beginners’ Course and over 16s book the Adult Beginners’ Course. Once you have passed this course, you can attend the club. 

Please note: U18s can only climb under the supervision of a TCA instructor or a registered adult roped climber. U18s will be considered for unsupervised climbing once they have attended the Young Adult Climbers’ Club for multiple sessions. Please email instructingteambristol@theclimbingacademy.com for more information.
 

OUTDOOR TASTER SESSION 16+

During the summer months, we run outdoor top-rope taster sessions. These sessions require no previous climbing experience and are run at our brilliant local crags, Wyndcliif Quarry and Avon Gorge.
