All new climbers are required to attend a safety induction. All participants must attend, irrespective of previous experience or qualification. The minimum age to climb is 4, we have special harnesses that make this possible.
The minimum age to belay at Cliffhanger is 14 years (please see exceptions for advanced users below). Teens aged 14 and over can belay provided they pass the belay test. Most 14 year olds pass. Some may be conditionally approved, but still deemed to need adult supervision. We require adults to be present for any children aged 14 years or less, to belay or assist with belay.
When can kids younger than 14 be approved to belay? Regular belay users who climb with our kids club or youth squad, members of other junior programs, or kids who belay regularly outdoors, may be approved at a younger age. This is based on capacity and general attitudes towards safety.
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the booked time and with waiver forms signed for all participants (climbing and/or belaying). Arriving late and/or without completed documents might cause significant delay to the starting time of your safety induction.
Returning visitors are not required to book, unless the last visit was over 12 months ago or if they require a new safety lesson.
If in doubt on any of the explained above, please see our FAQs below for more information or contact us prior to making your booking.
