Try climbing on real rock with one of the Quay’s fully instructed outdoor taster sessions. They are great fun for families, groups or individuals who want to have a feel for climbing outside on rock. Taster sessions require no previous experience of outdoor rock climbing – just a willingness to have a go and an enjoyment of outdoor adventure.
Our Outdoor Rock Taster includes instruction in belaying, basic climbing and movement and lots of climbs to try. The session is suitable for anyone aged 7 and over and requires no previous climbing experience. You can opt for a half day session for just £37.50 per person or a full day for £60 per person. Sessions are available for a minimum group size of 4 and a maximum of 18.
Our Outdoor Bouldering Taster focuses on the techniques for bouldering outdoors and covers mat placement, spotting, basic movement, warm up, technique and access, conservation and environmental factors. The session is suitable for anyone aged 14 and over – experience of bouldering indoors will be useful. The session costs £80 for a full day and sessions run with a minimum group size of 2 and a maximum of 6. See our event diary for our timetable.
