Looking for a new sport or fitness routine that you can try on your own, with your friends or even with your kids?  You’ve just found it. Sociable, dynamic and fun, climbing gives you a physical and mental high and is the perfect alternative to boring gym regimes for adults, and a great way to prove to children that exercise can actually be really fun.

It’s suitable for all ages and abilities and regular practice will improve your body dynamics, suppleness, power and strength. It’s good for your mind too and is a great stress buster, since it requires you to focus your mind entirely on your body movements. Keep in shape, distract yourself from the pressures of everyday life and most importantly, have an awesome time doing it!

My nine year-old daughter and I took the Family Intro Course at Big Rock and I heartily recommend it. In just three two-hour sessions our brilliant instructor, Ania, took us from being mere climbing novices to competent belayers/climbers with enough confidence to come to Big Rock on our own to enjoy their superb facilities, whenever we want. The course is well organised, fun and the two hours just fly by. You are assessed for competence/safety “as you go” so there is no test at the end to worry about or anything like that. Get out there and go climbing!

Visited Big Rock to just take the kiddies and get a feel for the place and ended up doing the Intro Course with 5 of my friends and no experience at all. We all felt very welcome by the staff and had a brilliant time with an outstanding instructor Paul who made us all feel very at ease. The Intro Course is a great way to lean and have fun along the way and for sure is worth its weight in gold. Big thanks to everyone there.
