FIRST TIME CLIMBERS
If you would like to learn how to climb our routes you will need to learn how to fit the equipment correctly and use a belay device. You can choose to learn in private sessions or by joining our Adult Classes. Our Intro Class is perfect for people who have no experience at all, the Beginners Class is the next step and where you will learn all the skills to climb unsupervised at the Big Depot.
If you only want to try bouldering then all you need to do is watch our Video Induction at the bottom of this page.

Bouldering at Big Depot Leeds
For bouldering, Adults (over 18) can complete the Adult Unsupervised Waiver once watching the video below and juniors will need a parent or guardian to complete the Under 18 Supervised.
When you get to the centre the staff will ask if you watched the video then will ask a series of questions about the video to check you understood the content. You will be able to ask questions at this point.
If you would like to rope climb, simply book onto a class.Waivers
