Book a coaching session and have a highly qualified and experienced coach learn what’s holding you back, and help you become a better and happier climber.

Climbing is a vast, complex and beautiful sport and so much can be learnt just through trial and error, but for some parts of climbing having an experienced coach can make it much easier to learn, saving you months or years of experimentation and slow progress.

Every climber can benefit from improving on movement techniques, tactics, psychology and physical training. Our coaching team can provide it all, at convenient times and competitive prices.


  • Sessions can be 60 or 90 minutes long, we recommend 60 minutes to start.
  • All styles of climbing provided for.
  • You can speak to our head coach beforehand to ask any questions you like before booking or after the session.
  • The cost of your coaching session covers entry to the wall before and after on the day.
  • Book online, in person or over the phone to give your climbing a boost.
