Starter & Intermediate Classes to book today!

If you are keen to learn how to climb – our Adult Climbing Classes are the perfect flexible and affordable way to start

Just like the traditional climbing wall beginners course, you will learn everything you need to know to use the centre unsupervised. However, you can learn at your own pace on the classes that suit you.

All our Starter Classes are on the first week of every month, meaning that everyone starts at the same time. After one Starter Class you can move on to the Intermediate Classes, here you can learn at your own pace with the flexible class structure during the rest of the month. Our Learn to Lead sessions are privately booked and will give you the information required to safety take the step into lead climbing.

Completing the Starter Class will give you access to the bouldering and auto belay facilities at Huddersfield Climbing Centre. Once you have completed a minimum of 3 Intermediate Classes you will be a signed off as a competent climber and able to use the ropes. By completing a Learn to Lead session you will have the confidence to take the next step on to the big walls.

Classes are 1.5 hours long and include all equipment. They run every Tuesday and Thursday at 19:30 and every Saturday at 18:00. Starter Classes are only available at these times on the first day of the month
