Frequently Asked Questions

What is Clip ‘N Climb?
Clip ‘N Climb is a large arena full of themed climbing challenges. They are all exciting and different, and operate with automatic belays which lower climbers gently back to the ground when they have finished a climb. No experience is required and our trained staff provide a safety briefing before each session. Harnesses are provided in the entry price. Climbers need to wear fully enclosed shoes and active wear is recommended – no sandals or skirts.

Do we need to book?
Booking online is highly recommended and essential on weekends and holidays. This avoids the need to manually complete paperwork upon arrival. Book your session here.

Are there age limits? Weight limits? Height limits?
There is no age limit at Clip ‘N Climb. Instead, we go by weight:
The minimum weight climbers must be is 15kg. As long as your child weighs at least 15kg, they will fit a harness and are welcome to climb.
The maximum weight is 150kg.

Can we leave our children at Clip ‘N Climb and pick them up at the send of the session?
Children under the age of 13 years MUST be accompanied by an adult, with a maximum ratio of five children to one adult (5:1) for supervision purposes. All adults supervising are required to attend the safety / harness briefing and to check that their children are correctly clipped in before they start each climb. Non-climbing adults are free to come into Clip ‘N Climb for this.

How long is a session and when do they start?
Each session starts with a compulsory safety briefing and harness check which takes about 15 minutes. The climbing time is one hour. For planning purposes, allow 1.5 hours for a session. Our session times are as follows:

What should I bring? What should I wear?

Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move around in. Jeans, short-shorts, skirts, dresses, and midriff tops are not recommended.
Bring a bottle of water as climbing is thirsty work!

Can I use my own harness, climbing shoes and chalk?
Customers may bring their own harness but it will need to be submitted to Clip ‘N Climb staff for approval before it may be used. There is no need for climbing shoes, however you may certainly use them. We do not allow chalk at Clip ‘N Climb.
