The Rockstar Summer Climbing Festival weekend is open to all families and is the perfect opportunity to come and give climbing a go! We have rope sessions on our 10m High Wall and bouldering sessions on our lower 4.5m walls all available to try and open to both children and adults.
JUNIOR & ADULT HIGH WALL CHALLENGE
Take on our 10m High Wall and test your head for heights, how high can you climb? All sessions are run by our professional climbing instructors.
High Wall Challenge sessions are available as follows:
Saturday 28 July: Every hour between 9.30am and 2.30pm.
Sunday 29 July: Every hour between 9.30am and 4.30pm.

Bouldering Intro sessions are available as follows:
Saturday 28 July: Every hour between 10.15am and 2.15pm.
Sunday 29 July: Every hour between 10.15am and 4.15pm.
TRAVERSE WALL CHALLENGE
Our Traverse Wall is our smallest climbing wall at 2.5m but size can be deceiving! Traversing (climbing sideways) offers a great challenge for both children and adults alike. How far can you traverse without touching the floor? A great activity for very small climbers too!
