The Intro Lesson is our beginner course, based on 4 basic principles of technique and essential safety. Although we call it a lesson, it's all about discovering the enjoyment and the challenge of climbing movement. The Intro Lesson is suitable for all levels of fitness and motivation and has a minimum age of 12. Those aged 12-15 must bring with them a consent form signed by a parent or guardian.

The cost is £20 per person for a one hour class & includes equipment hire as well as free entrance to the centres for the rest of the day. After your Intro Lesson, you'll be ready to climb on your own at any of our centres, whenever you want.

In case you want some more help before coming on your own, ask your instructor for a timetable of our free weekly Adult Improver Sessions which are the perfect follow up.

Due to The Biscuit Factory's Closure in August and the current expansion of Building One, General Introduction Lessons at our South centres are taking a short break. If you'd like to arrange a daytime Introduction or Private Lesson, please email Lessons at Arch North are running as normal. 

The Introduction session was immensely enjoyable and the staff member leading it was friendly, helpful and engaged. Any nervousness dissipated along the way. By the time we left, we were confident in our ability to climb, and thus enjoyed the day entry that came with the Introduction.

We went for a morning of family fun with my teenage & young adult children. We’d booked an induction session and spent over an hour with Jake, who was very patient with us. Suits varying abilities and was great fun.
