Alternatively if you have an experienced friend they can sign you in as a novice under their care. You can then learn to climb safely from them.

If you are climbing independently you can hire all the equipment you need from reception including harness, belay device, shoes and helmets.
There will be in situ top ropes on some routes. To lead climb you will need your own rope.
Can I climb unsupervised if I have no experience?
