Climb Chichester

Our eight metre Rock Climbing wall is equipped with a wide range of climbing routes for both novice and expert climbers. 


Public Climbing

Can anyone climb?

All experienced climbers who can tie-on and belay in a safe manner may attend any of our public sessions after completion of a disclaimer form and a short assessment by our in-house instructor. Assessed climbers can then supervise up to two novice climbers.

*Please note to climb alone in our public sessions, children aged 16 and 17 years need to have a disclaimer form signed by their parent or guardian. 

To climb with us in our public sessions children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is a competent climber.

Children must be 8+ to join our children's clubs.
