We did the family climb which was brilliant. Our guide kept us all safe and gave us lots of confidence. The kids were up to the top of the easy climb and moved on to the harder stuff straight away. Great fun, great exercise.

I can't rate this highly enough. My 6 year old loved this so much that I am about to take the 4 year old as well. Very safe, clear instruction and good monitoring. Plenty of routes and interest. 1 hour booking slots. Highly recommended.
