Bouldering guests

In order to bring up to two novice guests aged 5+ to the bouldering wall, you must have already passed the induction assessment for Bouldering and should submit the Bouldering Wall novice guest form to register your guests.

Before you complete the form, your guests will need to have a leisure card or membership which they will need to Sign up for online or Book a tour appointment with a membership advisor

When you have submitted the relevant guest form, we will then confirm once each guest has the relevant permission to climb with you added to their leisure card or membership. Guests will only be granted access once their permission has been added, and only if you are with them. Your guests will be charged for their attendance, however if they have a health and fitness membership they can boulder as your guest as part of their membership at no additional cost.
