Please note we are unable to offer inductions at this moment in time
Experienced climbers (ages 18 plus)
If you consider yourself as an experienced boulderer and have used indoor bouldering centres regularly, then there is no need complete a centre induction. Upon your first visit to Boulder UK you will need to register and pay a one off joining fee of £5 at reception. To save time, you may wish to pre-register online by clicking the button below.
Experienced climbers (ages 14-17)
A parent or guardian will need to register you at the centre on your first visit for unsupervised climbing and give their consent for you to climb during public times. You will also be asked to complete a junior competency form to assess your understanding/experience.
Boulder UK is passionate about introducing new climbers to the sport / lifestyle. We are committed to ensuring that your first climbing experience is a positive one, so if you have never climbed before at an indoor bouldering centre or have limited experience, we will ask you to complete a Boulder UK induction with us before you start climbing. If you are bringing the kids for a climb, you will still need to participate in a family induction to enable you to register with us (if you do not wish to climb, see below for how juniors can get involved). During the induction you will learn the necessary skills to use an indoor rock climbing facility safely and effectively.
