Here's what you need to know...
At The Reach, anyone may climb under the close supervision of an adult climber who is registered with us - here's how to register
Close supervision (of a guest climber) means AT ALL TIMES:
- Being in their immediate area, within sight and within a few metres
- Paying close attention to them, so that you can step in verbally and/or physically to assist them when necessary
- The supervising member must remain on the ground at all times.
The supervising member must be 18 or over, but there is no minimum (or maximum) age for the guests they can supervise.
Any one member may supervise no more than 2 guests on a given visit. When bouldering, only one guest may be on the wall at a time. Bouldering-only members must have visited and climbed at The Reach 3 times before they can supervise guests.
There is no entry fee for a supervising member, since they cannot leave the floor.
- Under 18 guest entry: £6
- Adult guest entry: £12 (or £10 off peak - Mon-Fri, before 4pm)
(prices do not include equipment hire)
Guest climbers must not belay, unless backed up by their supervising member.
Click on the form image below to complete the supervised guest climber form - it will open in a new tab. The completed form (once you have clicked the link in the confirmation email) will be available at the Reach reception.
Please note - for adult guests (those aged 18 or over), both they and the supervising member must sign the form, so both people must be present when the form is completed.
