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 weekday evenings from 17.00-19.00 and from 10.00-12.00 and 12.30-14.30 on Saturday and Sundays.

As of April 2022, the kids’ club is full, though you can add your child’s details to our waiting list. As an alternative we have availability on weekends for taster sessions or personal tuition. We also run outdoor courses in the summer holidays to the Southern Sandstone and Peak District.
