If you've never climbed before you'll need to come to come to an induction session (even if you're in the company of experts). Booking in advance is essential in London and recommended in our other venues.
If you're bringing the kids but don't intend to climb yourself, you'll still need to come to an induction to ensure you understand the dangers in the wall and how to keep your little ones safe. Again, booking in advance is best.
If you've climbed a few times you'll be asked some questions about your experience when you arrive. Don't be offended if we recommend you do an induction after this - it may well just be a refresher, but it's our way of ensuring everyone is safe in the environment, and we promise it won't take too long. You might even pick up some useful tips!
At our Plymouth site, inductions are compulsory for all parties.
No – there are no time slots at The Hangar – turn up when you like and stay as long as you want.
However, if you’re new to climbing you’ll need to do an induction and it’s best to book this online as we can get quite busy. It’s included in the standard entry price (along with a pair of hire shoes) and you can stay as long as you want afterwards.
We also run a range of kids’ clubs and adults’ sessions if you want to turbo charge your skills – booking in advance is essential as they often fill up quickly!
Yes. 14-17 year olds are welcome to climb at the Hangar without an adult but you do need to bring a parent of guardian with you on your first visit so we can get the waiver signed off in centre (even if you complete the waiver form at home). Once that’s done you’re free to come and go as you please.
Lots of our sessions are included in your entry price. For Liverpool, London and Plymouth you can book online and pay entry when you arrive at the centre.
In Swansea our booking system requires that you pay your entry fee at the time of booking a session.
For all paid sessions you'll need to pay at the time of booking. We're not able to reserve spaces on your behalf.
