Fun for all the family!!! Come and try outdoor rock climbing on the amazing sandstone sea-cliffs of Cummingston – the perfect location to “get to grips” with outdoor climbing, in an idyllic setting on the beach beside the sea. There are rock climbs of various difficulty, suitable for complete beginners right through to experienced climbers – we tailor the session based on the groups ability, keeping small ratios to ensure maximum safety and fun!
The session is open to children aged 5+ and their parents / legal guardians. Climbing can be an excellent family bonding activity! If parents don’t fancy climbing, that’s okay, your children can sign up individually but you will need to be present throughout the whole session – it will also be great fun as a spectator!
The cost is £35 pp, including the loan of equipment (but you are welcome to bring your own!). It is of course free to spectate / accompany your child if you do not wish to climb.
The session will be run by Anna Wells, fully qualified Rock Climbing Instructor, experienced youth coach, accomplished climber and World Cup competitor. The emphasis of the sessions will be on safety, fun and personal development.
Small group ratios mean we can tailor the sessions to the level of the participants. Those with little or no climbing experience will be able to get to grips with the basics, and for more experienced young climbers, we will focus on technique, movement and try more challenging climbs
You will be provided with a climbing harness and helmet. (You are welcome to bring your own if you have them)
You will not be provided with climbing shoes. Please bring comfortable footwear with a firm sole. Wear clothing that is easy to move around in. Bring warm layers, and a waterproof jacket. The climbing area is about ten minutes walk from the car park.
We will meet at the carpark at the end of Seaview Road in Cummingstown, IV30 5XY, as shown on the map here. The position on google maps is 57.702995, -3.457100
