Adult Intro to Climbing
This group class will get you climbing the walls in no time at all and is perfect for new climbers wanting their first experience of what climbing has to offer! You'll be partnered with up to 8 other like-minded, adventure hungry adults, looking to try climbing. Together you will explore new heights.
This 1.5 hour session for adults (16+yrs) is a taster of what Parthian Climbing Reading has to offer. Guided by one of our amazing instructors, you will get to try top rope climbing, as well as getting in-depth inductions to our autobelays and bouldering area. This session equips you with all the information you need to pass a competency check on your next visit, allowing you to climb unsupervised on the autobelays and bouldering wall going forward.
What people think

I am terrified of heights but the instructor puts you at ease and puts time into talking through everything. We done 3 different routes on the climbing walls and we’re also given time bouldering. It was a lot of fun and will now be able to return without an instructor.

The comments from the children were: "the instructors were great and really friendly." "there was a range of climbing activities for those who were confident and those who didn't want to go too high." "It was great fun we had a great time."
I’d just like to start with what a centre, the walls a constantly changing and improving weekly. I am righting this review solely on the performance of a team member, I never managed to get this lovely lady’s name. Me and my friend are confident at bouldering but have only just began belaying so we haven’t much a clue compared to the staff (this was shown immediately). We have just purchased an assisted breaking belay and we’re confused and didn’t…
We had the family introduction session, which was excellent. I was really pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I must admit I don’t have much to compare it with, but the feel of the building was light and airy, it was very clean and well maintained and had a great atmosphere. Our instructors were clearly knowledgeable and were very patient whist dealing with nervous climbers. The 90 minute session was enough time to try the three types of…
