The best place to start is usually with the basics. Hub Climbing’s Introductory Bouldering course aims to provide you with the basics you need to start climbing more efficiently, allowing you to have fun while developing a solid foundation for further improvement. The lesson covers everything from bouldering terminology to energy saving tips and tricks, and techniques for better body positioning. We’ve designed the lesson to help you maximize your climbing experience: more fun and more fitness.

Introductory Top Rope (Belay) lesson
Top Rope climbing (where the rope is anchored through a point at the top of the climb) is the traditional version of indoor climbing that most people associate with the sport. With anchors always above you, you have a fixed system that allows you to try climbs, while someone holds and works the rope to arrest falls and lower you back to the ground; this process is called belaying. The skills required to do this independently are not difficult, but require careful instruction and practice to properly master. Hub has 5 top rope stations for you to practice on.
- Instruction up to 2 hours. Includes climbing shoes, harness and a day pass!
Offered to those 13 or older.
