If you are new to bouldering then we very much recommend doing a taster session. At the moment we are running these as “private lessons” so you will not be with anyone other than your friends and our instructor.
They cost pretty much the same as a first visit drop in session and they include all the kit you need plus an instructor to show you around, teach you some basic techniques and get you up and running.
What’s more if it is your first time then when you register at the end of your session you will be given a free annual registration (normally £5) and free shoe hire for a month (normally £3.5 per session)!
If you don’t need a taster, as an adult you can pre-register online and book a slot using the Book Now button, selecting First Visit as your method of payment (this gives you a slight discount as it includes annual registration).
No matter what your experience, you will be asked to watch a short video induction, read our conditions of use and fill out a registration form. The staff will ask you a couple of questions to ensure you have understood the induction and then you will be free to use the centre.
Please pre-register online before you arrive to beat the queue and save valuable climbing time!
If you have never climbed before, our Taster Sessions are a fantastic way to try bouldering and see if you like it.

If you are looking for kids indoor activities & classes check out the kids page here. If you are looking to supervise your own children please see below (further info can be found on our Terms & Conditions page).
An adult who has registered at our bouldering centre will normally be allowed to supervise one child aged between 7 – 11 years old OR two children IF at least one of them is over 12 years old.
The supervising adult must take full responsibility for the safety of the participants and complete the relevant paperwork.
Or you can let us look after them for you! Check out the Boulder Monkey page for more details.
We do allow experienced teenagers to register to climb unsupervised. But they must get a parent to complete an enhanced parental consent form on top of your standard registration form.
If you are 14 or 15 your parent will need to visit the centre in order to complete the forms with you.
16 or 17 year olds parents can fill out the paperwork remotely, but they must be available via the phone to confirm on your first visit.
Bristol (along side the rest of the UK) is in Lockdown. This means we have had to close our doors once more.
If you have a booking with us we will be in touch very soon to offer you a voucher / refund.
If you have a membership with us we will also be in touch by email to ask you what to do with your fees over the next couple of months.
(some free ways to help and / or you can donate £££ if you are able).
