External Instructors

Qualified climbing instructors are welcome to bring their own groups to Harrogate Climbing Centre. All you need to do is bring in a copy of your qualification certificate (SPA /CWA or higher), your current First Aid certificate and the insurance document that covers you working with your group.

If you wish, you can also do an induction with our NICAS trainers that would allow you to deliver the NICAS scheme in the centre. The cost of this induction is £50.00 + VAT per head. This is reduced to £35.00 + VAT per head if you have a group of 4 or more instructors wishing to be inducted.

You don’t need to book in advance to bring your own group to Harrogate Climbing Centre, although if you are planning to bring a very big group it is better to call ahead to make sure no other large groups are due in the centre. This allows us to make sure there is enough wall space for your group to have a great session!

Groups coming into the wall with an external instructor are charged as follows:

Per Session (1hr) – £8.00
Half-day (4hrs) – £24.00
Full Day – (8hrs) – £40.00

1-5 Clients: Normal entry fees apply
6+ Clients/Under 18s: £7.00 per head

Instructors are asked to work within our maximum group ratios of 1:9 and work within their relevant qualification.
