Want to the learn the ropes?
Run over three two-hour sessions, you’ll learn everything you need to be a safe, competent bottom rope climber. Learning things such as; setting up your gear, tying into your harness, belaying, and of course a healthy dose of climbing technique.
Upon completion, you should be ready to hit our bottom rope walls to test your skills, and take your climbing to new heights.
All required equipment hire is included in the course.
Looking for something more advanced?
If you can already bottom rope confidently and want to try the next challenge, perhaps it’s time you took the next step and learned to lead climb!

Three 2 hour sessions led by Neil and Max have prepared the whole family (aged 19 to 57) for lead climbing. Both Neil and Max are very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and focused on providing an informative, rigorous and well assessed series of sessions. They answered all our questions, responded to our varied needs and made the experience really enjoyable. It is a year since we took up climbing and completed the initial course to top climb at the Manchester Climbing Centre. Our experience over the past three weeks reflects the climbing centre’s friendly and professional approach to encouraging new climbers. Definitely to be recommended!
Just completed the 3 week Learn to Lead course as a family. Couldn't make the 'public' dates, so they organised sessions to suit us. Neill took us for the first two weeks and Max for the final session last night. I was nervous about learning to fall when lead climbing but by the end of the course I have to confidence to carry on leading. Can't think how this could have been better!
I had an introduction session with instructor Oli and it was amazing! we had a lot of time to practice and get the basics of climbing. Oli gave the 4 of us a great deal of attention and engaged us straight away with warm up activities and insightful information. I'm definitely coming back. Oh, the place used to be a church, so the old-style atmosphere makes a difference
We attended an ‘Intro to climbing’ session today with Oli. The session was great. There was only 4 of us in our group so we got plenty of opportunity to climb. We did a lot more climbing than I has anticipated so it felt like real value for money. The warm up games were fun and a great way to break the ice. As total novices we felt at ease straight away.
I went on the adult intro to climbing course which lasted an hour and a half and the guide was very helpful and kind, it was a great and exciting experience. I was able to experience bouldering and top rope climbing. Will definitely visit again!
