Do I need to book?

If you have a group of 10 or more climbers then you will need to make a booking.  For everyone else you can just turn up and an instructor will be able to help.

First time at City Summit?

All new climbers at the centre will be given an induction on arrival.  During busy periods we run inductions every half hour.  If you need to wait, you can enjoy a drink and chill in the lounge area.

Before you climb for the first time at City Summit, you will need to complete a Waiver Form.  To speed things up you can do this online before you arrive.  You only need to do this once.  Under 18’s need approval from a parent or guardian.

First time climbers

If you can climb a ladder then you can rock climb!

All new climbers are welcomed by our friendly staff and given a full induction on using the equipment to make sure you have a fun and safe experience.

  • During busy periods we run inductions every half hour
  • Groups of 10 or more require a booking
  • Children under 12 require an adult to belay for them

Once you feel confident on the wall you can start to tackle our graded climbs ranging from pure beginners right through to advanced climbers. Our instructors are always on hand to help.

Before you arrive

What to wear

Climbing is easiest in stretchy or loose fitted clothing and sneakers are great for your feet.  We also hire climbing shoes and chalk bags which will greatly improve your climbing ability.


When you arrive

You will need to complete a Liability Waiver Form prior to climbing for the first time at the centre.  You can speed up the process by completing this online with the link above.   

An instructor will fit your harness, show you how to use the equipment and once you have the hang of things, you can explore the centre on your own.  We will always be available for any questions you have and to check you are climbing safely.
