At Boulder Shack we understand the true benefits that come from climbing, and our highly qualified and experienced instructors will work with your group to encourage teamwork, communication, confidence, self-discipline and other essential personal skills.

To help manage progression and development at Boulder Shack, junior climbers can work through NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme) to level 2 or NIBAS (National Indoor Bouldering Award Scheme) all the way to level 5.  These fun programs will also give its participants the skills needed to climb at any other climbing wall in the UK during public time (age limit permitting). This NICAS & NIBAS programmes provide a foundation for a fun and well-structured learning process, put in place for individual members upon request at an additional one-off cost of just £6; please ask at the time of booking for more information.

Group prices vary depending on group size, length, frequency of your sessions and whether NICAS / NIBAS is included. Call us now or send us a message to find out exactly how we can work with you and your group.

You are welcome to book yourself in to use Boulder Shack with your own qualified climbing instructors during any of our opening times. You will need to provide us with each instructor’s qualification from the MT (Mountain Training), a first aid certificate and a copy of your insurance. This can be emailed to us here to save time or just bring it in on the day.

Prices for self-taught sessions are kept simple, you just pay the door charge for each participant who will be climbing, including any equipment you require – instructors come in for free.

There is no need to pre-book, however, if you are a large group it’s always handy if you can give us a heads up if you can.

When you arrive you will be asked to complete a digital sign-in for yourself and your group. You can also complete this for here on the day of your visit to save you time at reception.

At Boulder Shack, we work closely with other climbing walls in the area and can provide you with instructors that will meet you at these external walls. You might like us to stand in for your own instructors whilst they’re on leave or work with you to write and deliver a full program. All equipment can be provided and we are completely flexible to fit with your needs.

You may also want to experience the thrill of climbing outside, and this is where our instructors will help you get the most out of your days on the cliffs. Call us to hear more about what Boulder Shack Climbing Gym can do for your school or youth group – we’re always happy to chat.
