While the kids climb…
Climbing’s not just for kids! There are plenty of ways you can get involved with the action at HarroWall during your visit.
Take part in sessions alongside your children (just add yourself as a participant when you book on), or even sign up for an Induction Plus for your first introduction to the sport of bouldering.
By the end of the session you’ll have discovered a new sport and will be ready to take our Bouldering Supervisor Assessment, which will allow you to supervise up to two children during independent climbing in HarroWall.
If climbing sounds too much like hard work, we’ve got the answer. Put your order in at the kitchen, sit back, and enjoy a great view of the action in the while the children conquer the walls.
We serve great coffee, tasty treats, and freshly cooked food made to order onsite, with options for adults as well as post-climb food for the kids.
