Youth beginners

White Angles

There are loads of easy ways to start climbing with kids.

You can drop-in and boulder together as a family or explore our Youth pages to find out more about courses for each age-group. We run Tiny Academy for parents and toddlers, regular term-time classes, holiday sessions and climbing clubs for young adults at The Prop Store. We offer additional classes for youth at The Prop Store in Maryhill.




Bouldering is low-level climbing over mats.  You do not need to do a course to start bouldering and you do not need to book for drop-in climbing. You can save time before you visit by completing forms online before you visit. The forms include a safety video that tells you everything you need to know to start bouldering.

Under 16s must be supervised by a registered adult. Each adult can supervise up to 2 others per visit.  You can boulder at both Glasgow centres. There is a kids-specific climbing area at The Newsroom which has climbs set for little people and a popular mini-slide.
