Not Climbed Before

We believe climbing is a much more exciting alternative to boring gym routines for adults and also great fun for kids. It helps you  to keep fit without actually feeling you’re doing real exercise, climbing is also very sociable, so what’s stopping you?

Climbing is suitable for all ages (5+) and abilities, climbing provides a low impact workout at a level specific to you. It’s also great for relieving stress as climbing requires you to focus your mind entirely on your body movements.  It helps to keep you in shape, distract you from the pressures of everyday life and have fun whilst you’re doing it! If you have never tried climbing before just book onto one of our Taster Sessions or Intro Courses.

In line with nationally recognised guidelines, Harlech & Ardudwy Leisure will allow very experienced 16-17 year olds to undertake an assessment at our discretion, and with the consent of their parents or guardians. If successful in the assessment, the applicant can use the climbing and bouldering walls in the same way as an adult climber, but they cannot supervise any novices or other under 18s.
