To climb during our recreational climbing sessions you will either need to become a member of the wall or be signed in as a guest by a member.

Membership for Bournemouth Climbing Wall is open to any climber age 16 or over who can demonstrate the following basic safety skills correctly;

  • Putting on a harness
  • Tying on to the climbing rope
  • Belaying another climber correctly

There is a one off charge for membership of just £3.

To become a member you will need to read our conditions of use & rules and complete our membership application form. You will then be asked to demonstrate the above safety skills to one of our wall supervisors whilst you do your first climb, no booking required.

16 &17 year olds will need to complete a youth membership application form and ensure the parental permissssion section of this form is completed before they will be allowed to climb. 16 & 17 year old members will not be able to sign in guests.
