New To Climbing


Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. No complicated ropes or harnesses, all you need is climbing shoes. Your challenge is to climb short but interesting bouldering “problems” (sequences of moves) using technique, balance, strength, and your brain.

Watch the video below to get a visual idea of why you should give it a go!


The beauty of bouldering is that every “problem” has its own solution, and to successfully climb it you need to figure it out. Depending on your body shape and personal strengths, your solution could be different to the next person’s. If you’re tall, you might be able to reach the next hold more easily on spaced-out problems but find yourself hindered when the route takes you into corners or grooves on the wall.

You don’t need experience or lots of expensive kit to have a go – making it really easy to get into if you’ve never tried it before. The specialist climbing shoes are available to hire from reception or buy in our shop.


Can my Kids Climb?

If you have children, 17 and under, then their a number of options for them to climb. Please read our specific Children Climbing page on the website for full information. Please note that children who do not have extensive bouldering experience, cannot climb independently. More is explained here.

I want to give it a go!

Just visit our pre-register page, watch our Bouldering Induction video and come on down. If you don’t have time now you can also do this at reception at HarroWall. It’s that easy! You can be climbing within 20mins of walking in through the door.

Can I climb with an Instructor on my first visit?

Of course you can! We run Bouldering Private Session that are perfect for adults wanting to get into the sport. They’re super friendly one-off that will give you all the info you need to enjoy this new sport. We run them at different times during the week.

This sport is great! Now that I’ve climbed is there a beginners course I can do?

In normal times we’d run our Boulderign Foundation sessions. Unfortunately we are unable to do these now but hope to get them up and running again soon. Please ask at reception for latest information.


Bouldering is a super accessible sport that is open to anyone of any age and ability. Come try this great new sport today!
