The perfect first time climbing experience


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.
