Very simply… search the internet for ‘Climbing wall in [your nearest city] [your county]” and there will almost definitely be a wall within 30-45 minutes of your home, no matter where you live. Visit the UK Climbing website and use their climbing wall finder and you’ll see how easy it is to start climbing.
At Boulder Shack, our Induction Plus sessions cover all of the basics of bouldering. You’ll be in a group with other novice climbers (so this is an easy and fun way to meet other people to climb with!) and you’ll be guided by one of our friendly and knowledgable instructors.
Once you’ve found your nearest climbing wall then you need to call them up. Every public climbing wall will offer a course that teaches new people to climb – fact. Get them to tell you about their course programme, check the dates, and book your space.
Then you just need to find someone to climb with, right?
