What people think
I took my niece and nephew for an introductory session of 90 minutes and they both enjoyed it. My nephew has been on a climbing course elsewhere and said this was better. Eight in the class, very well instructed, encouraged and coached. 90 mins was about right - any more and they would have been too sore. We used the excellent cafe on site for after-climb refreshments.
Took my grandson- he loved it! Two young men as “tutors” were excellent with the children. Excellent value for money-
I recommend the introduction to climbing sessions for children. The instructor was perfect in that he encouraged the children to challenge themselves in a safe, calm, containing way. An excellent instructor giving the children a happy and enjoyable experience...thank you.
This experience exceeded expectations. It is a lovely, large and bright space. The groups were not too large, so no time to get bored or distracted and it was professionally run- starting on time. Our instructor was excellent- attentive, expert and kind.
Took my two daughters ( aged 12 and 9 ) to the 9 - 14 year old introduction to climbing session. The centre itself is excellent with a wide range of climbing challenges and space for parents to watch. The lady who took the session was brilliant and with just right mix of encouragement and instruction had the girls enthusiastically tackling every challenge she gave them. But I was just an observer. The girls should be the real reviewers - their conclusion was - "it was awesome" and "when can we come back"
I took my two daughters, aged 8 and 5, to the Harrogate climbing centre. The instructor was brilliant with them. Really clear instructions, lots of encouragement and praise, and challenged them to achieve more than they both believed was possible. My 5 year old said she was so proud of herself and had a "wonderful feeling inside" when she reached the top of one of the climbing walls. Will definitely return!
My grandson and I had a great climbing experience with harrogate climbing centre. It was my first time climbing. The instructor Anthony was very experienced and I felt completely safe. My grandson Jack (9) has climbed before but he was also impressed with the instruction. I am considering joining the club as a way to improve my overall strength and fitness. Thank you for a great time
We decided to give some proper climbing a go after our son Sam (6yrs) had visited a kiddies clip and climb. We weren’t disappointed, our instructor Jo was brilliant. We started off slowly with some sensible warm ups, followed by some traversing to get us into the swing of things. Then we moved on to a series of climbing walls to test our abilities. I really can’t fault this business and would recommend this as a great family activity.
