What is The Climbing Hangar's registered address?

The Climbing Hangar Registered Address

'The Climbing Hangar' is the trading name for 'GRIP UK LTD'. For all invoicing and other B2B enquiries, please use the address below:

GRIP UK LTD, Office 4, 12 Jordan Street, Baltic Triangle, Liverpool, L1 0BP.

Do I need an induction?

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.

Can kids under 18 climb unsupervised?

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.

What equipment do I need?

You don’t need to bring anything with you except your enthusiasm and some comfortable clothes. Shoe hire is included in entry and chalk’s just £1.50.

How fit and strong do I need to be?

You don’t need to be fit or super strong to start climbing. You’ll find climbs (we call them problems) you can do on your first visit, and the more you practice the stronger you’ll become! Just make sure you warm up before you start to minimise the risk of injury, and you can get cracking right away (our staff can help if you need guidance – just ask).
