Half Day Outdoor Climbing Taster - Roche Rock (Families & Juniors)

  • Location St Austell
  • Price from £45.00


This course is for families and juniors with a minimum age of 6.

Enjoy a fun and active half day trying out rock climbing. You will have the opportunity to get loads of climbing done and you'll be helping to hold the ropes for other group members when not climbing.
From it’s unusual rock type to the 15th century chapel built into the very bones of the landscape, Roche Rock is a unique venue for climbers and historians. Steeped in legend, from it’s creation during the biblical floods to a refuge from demonic forces, it’s now a popular climbing spot - the rock is rough and grippy (even in the rain!) and the different outcrops provide a great range of challenges for the eager climber.


You'll meet your instructor at the parking location where they will check that you have everything you need and issue you with some essential equipment such as a harness and helmet.
You will then walk into the crag (a short, grassy trail) where you will have a safety brief and introductions will be made - climbing is a really friendly activity so it’s great to get to know the others on the course.
Then you get to climb! Our maximum capacity means everyone will get plenty of time to climb. When you're not climbing, you'll be involved in holding the ropes for the other climbers.
At the end of the session we'll wrap up, the instructor will need to de-rig, and we'll walk back to the parking together.


  • If the accompanying parent or legal guardian does not want to climb, they will not need their own ticket.
