Under 18 Supervised Climber

Juniors (17 and under) can use the Centre if directly supervised by an adult with an appropriate level of competency.  The adult must have passed either a Bouldering Supervisor Assessment or be a competent roped climber (only applies if they are a regular climber at KendalWall or PrestonWall). To attempt the supervisor assessment you must have had attended a Bouldering Induction OR  have climbed independently in an indoor climbing centre a minimum of four times. The assessment takes up to 15 minutes and include a variety of questions about bouldering safety, appropriate warming up, injury prevention, spotting and your responsibilities as a supervisor.

Experienced climbers aged 14-17 can complete an assessment to climb independently but cannot supervise others until aged 18.

If you are new or are unsure if you have sufficient experience and would like to learn how to become a bouldering supervisor we recommend booking a Bouldering Induction.


New Registrations Process

Step 1: Parent and Junior to read the Conditions of Use and Rules and the Good Practice Guidelines.

Step 2: Parent and Junior to watch our Induction Video below:

Step 3: Parent to complete the Online Registration Form for themselves and the Junior.

Step 4: Printed copies of the Bouldering Supervisor Assessment will be provided onsite to complete with a team member at reception. You will only be allowed to supervise if you can answer these questions without help from a staff member.

Step 5: Come on down and get climbing! Please note that you will have to pass the Supervisory Assessment before you are allowed to climb. We recommend you allow around 15mins to speak to a member of staff and complete the assessment.
