Who Can Climb?
Dart Rock Climbing Centre welcomes everyone whether you are a novice who wants to gain experience and develop skills or a dedicated rock athlete looking to push your limits. We provide an environment that caters for all abilities and offers the best indoor climbing experience.

No climbing experience?
We offer a range of introductory courses from a 1 hour "Try A Climb” session to a complete indoor climbing course where you will learn all you need to safely make the best use of the climbing walls (see courses page). All courses are with a qualified instructor and all equipment will be provided. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Once you have completed one of our courses, you may be able to climb unsupervised at the centre if your instructor feels you are sufficiently competent.  You may also learn to climb under the supervision of an experienced friend who is a registered climber.

With no experience you can register as a boulderer only (bouldering is un-roped climbing above a safety mat) and experience the fascinating sport of bouldering unsupervised (over 18’s only)

Unsupervised climbing

Registered adult climbers may climb unsupervised at the centre. A registered climber can supervise up to two novice climbers per session.

How to register

Adults with climbing experience may register to climb unsupervised at the centre. In order to register you must be able to:-

  1. Put on a sit harness correctly
  2. Attach a rope to the harness using a re-threaded figure of eight
  3. Use a belay device to secure a falling climber

Young climbers
Children may climb at the centre under the supervision of a registered adult climber. If you are aged between 5 and 12 years you may join our Little Lizards club or if you are aged between 12 and 17 our Chameleons club and climb under the supervision of our qualified staff.

We also offer Taster Sessions for juniors under 17 years of age. If you are between 14 and 17 years old you may climb unsupervised at the Centre with parental consent and after passing an assessment. Under 18 registered climbers are not permitted to sign in other climbers under their supervision.
