Free Skills Workshops after your Induction.
After completing your Induction you will receive a stamp card that you can use to keep track of your visits to Big Rock. Each time you visit, we’ll stamp your card and after visiting 5 times, we will offer you a free Level 1 Skills Workshop so that we can keep in touch and see how you’re getting on. Visit another 10 times and you can attend the Level 2 Skills Workshop for free too! The Workshops will help you get the most out of Big Rock and will also help you access climbs and areas that have previously been unattainable. There aren’t even any annoying terms and conditions, and you can book your free Workshops online at a time and date to suit your schedule.
Sounds good… how do I book?
We run Bouldering Inductions every day, during weekday mornings, afternoons and evenings, and also at weekends. You can book right here using our simple to use online booking system. Our online booking system operates in real time so you can check current availability and select any available session.
Choose from one of the three options below: you can attend our standard Bouldering Induction (suitable for all adults age 18+), a Family Bouldering Induction (suitable for parents attending with children age 11+) or a Ladies Bouldering Induction (suitable for all females age 18+).
During your 1 hour induction, we’ll get you started with the fundamentals of bouldering and you’ll then be able to use Big Rock on your own, including during the rest of the day immediately following your induction.
You’re ready to go! You can now visit Big Rock at any time and go bouldering unsupervised upon payment of our standard day pass fee – see our current rates HERE. Unlike regular gyms, Big Rock is operated on a pay as you go basis so you don’t need to sign up to any contracts to use the centre.

I only popped in to have a look! I’d been toying with the idea for a while but I was a little too shy to commit. I needn’t have worried. The staff were really approachable and I felt welcome. There was no pushy sales pitch, no hidden agenda. I ended up booking a Bouldering Induction there and then. Dave was brilliant. The instruction was calm, measured and above all engaging. I managed to accomplish climbs that I never would have thought possible for a beginner. Above all, there was no pressure. He took his time to explain things without impatience or the pressure of the clock. The session was over yet he hung around to boulder with me a little more. Brilliant just brilliant. His parting comment: “If you’re stuck, just ask. We’ll always help.”
Took the Bouldering Induction with my girlfriend and had a great experience. We were taught some basic techniques and we were encouraged to go at our own pace. At the end of the session we were able to stay and climb until we’d had enough. We will definitely be returning on a regular basis.
My husband and I attended the Bouldering Induction session. We are both in our 50s and were pleased that we were able to complete the basic climbs. We will be going back. The instructor was excellent and all the staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome.
Absolutely fantastic experience. Myself and my companion were very nervous but all of that was completely dissipated by the professionalism and welcoming atmosphere. All the other climbers were so incredibly friendly and there’s a fantastic mix of skill levels which is both impressive and motivating. We will absolutely be coming again!
