Frequently asked questions

I’ve never climbed before what can I do?

If you’ve never climbed before you will need to book a session with an instructor. A Taster Session is ideal if you want to have a go on our ropes, auto belays and bouldering.


Bouldering is the most accessible form of climbing, so if you want to jump straight in our Bouldering induction is the best session for you, book now.

Are there any age limits for climbing?

The minimum age that we can cater for at The Tide is 4 years old, under the supervision of an adult registered climber. There is no upper limit and we see climbers as young as 68 years old! Climbing is incredibly safe when conducted under controlled conditions.


For beginners we offer courses for adults and clubs for younger climbers.


If you are a competent climber you need to be over 18 to complete our standard registration process. Adult registered climbers can supervise juniors. We have strict ratios of adult supervision, If a junior is younger than 9 there must be a 1:1 ratio of supervising adult to junior. If a junior is 9 or older, the supervision ratio is 1:2 one adult to two juniors.


If you are under 18 and a competent climber you can only climb under the supervision of an adult (either a registered climber or one of our instructors) unless you have been signed off by an in house instructor.

How do I register to use the climbing centre?

If you are competent climber then you need to register with us. The registration process is simple. There is a short form to complete and we will check that you are aware of the risks inherent in climbing and ask to see you demonstrate some of the basics such as tying in and belaying. Registration forms are available online here.

What do I need to bring?

Other than close fitting and comfortable clothing and a method of wrangling long hair, The Tide can supply everything required. Rock shoes, harnesses, belays and refreshments are available in our cafe but feel free to bring your own.

Can I climb unsupervised if I have no experience?

No, you must book on to one of our Bouldering inductions or roped courses. Unless you are being signed in by an experienced climber.

Do you have any rules or conditions I need to follow at the centre?

Yes, if you have old or worn gear our instructors have the right to check it and, if they deem it unsafe, will ask you to hire gear from the centre. Please climb fully clothed – no topless climbing!

I would like to bring someone who needs extra attention and assistance, will they be able to take part?

In short, YES!


We encourage absolutely everyone to come and join in, climbing is used by Help for Heroes for rehabilitation. It is a stimulating environment for individuals suffering from conditions such as Autism and Asperger’s syndrome.


We can change or turn off the music, we can recommend quiet periods, we can offer one on one tuition. Our core values incorporate having everyone involved in our centre.


There are entire governing bodies devoted to Paraclimbing, nothing about these athletes should be thought of as disabled, bouldering is a mental challenge that needs to be slowly worked through and teased open.


“I take people’s excuses away. Whatever it is that you tell me that you can’t do, I’m like we can find something to get it done.” Retired Army Sergeant Noah Galloway – Double amputee and personal trainer.
