New To Climbing
Your Climbing Journey Starts Here
We welcome climbers of all abilities at The Tide Climbing Centre and have plenty of routes that are suitable for beginners. We're excited to welcome you for your first climbing experience and help you on the start of your journey within this sport.

Before you can start climbing, you'll need to register with us and fill out our Waiver Form. This can either be done as you arrive at the centre, or by following the link below. There's a short induction video you'll need to watch too, which outlines best practice for bouldering as well as general health and safety points to follow while at The Tide Climbing Centre.

Climbing shoes and chalk are available to hire at Reception, along with harnesses and belay devices if you're looking to give rope climbing a try! We also offer a range of inductions and taster sessions with our Instructors, to help climbers improve their skills and technique in both bouldering and rope climbing. Keep scrolling to find out more information about the taught sessions we offer at The Tide Climbing Centre.
