Our blind and partially sighted climbing sessions are back with weekly sessions for all to take part in. By signing up you will get the opportunity to learn how to climb under a guided professional instructor and get active in a unique way!

These sessions will provide you with a great experience of learning how to use the ropes and gain increased confidence in climbing and navigating different types of walls within the centre. For those returning after the previous successful sessions last year, you will be able to build upon the skills learnt.
