1. Can I walk-in to climb?
Everybody is welcome to climb at KPCC. However, for safety reasons and without any exception, anyone who wants to climb at the KPCC outdoor wall needs to either have completed our Lead Climbing Assessment or Sports Climbing Intermediate - Lead Climbing Course . Alternatively,
you can attend/arrange a Course, Fun Day or Private Coaching.
2. What is Lead Climbing Assessment?
If you are visiting KPCC for the first time you will be required to perform a Lead Climbing Assessment where you will be asked to put on a climbing harness correctly, tie in with a figure eight knot, belay safely, demonstrate a proper fall exercise, lead climb, clip and clear quick draws. We then carry out a brief assessment to see if we agree you can do this with a trained assessor. You can use your own equipment or we will supply what you need.
