What's involved?

A 30-minute, instructor-led session will cover all the things you need to know to make the most of your visit to Depot Nottingham and meet fellow new climbers.

Starting with safety, we’ll cover best practices, do’s, and dont’s to keep you climbing safely throughout your climbing journey and show you around the centre facilities, from our climbing walls to training areas.

We’ll explain how the grading system works, what training equipment is there for, and how to safely use the gym equipment.

Then we’ll cover a few basic techniques and skills that will help you start your climbing experience on the strongest footing, from how to make sure you’re fully warmed up, to placing your feet and hands efficiently.
