The kids’ climbing club

Geckos has been running a popular children’s climbing club at The Castle Climbing Centre in London since 1999. It is open to all children aged 9 to 18. All aspects of indoor climbing are covered, including:

  • Climbing safety
  • Top-roping
  • Bouldering
  • Abseiling
  • Lead-climbing (for more experienced climbers)
Climbing on the outdoor boulders at The Castle
Climbing on The Castle’s outdoor boulders

We run sessions on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 17.00-18.00 and 18.15-19.15 and from 09.00-10.00 and 10.15-11.15 on Saturday and Sunday mornings. As of September 2020, the kids’ club is full, though we do have availability on weekends for taster sessions or personal tuition.
