Want to try climbing under the watchful eye of a nationally qualified instructor? Why not try a taster session.
A Taster Session is a 1.5hr taster of roped climbing and bouldering (climbing without ropes above crash matting).
Anyone 14 years and above can take part in a taster session but under 18's must contact the centre (020 89800289) to get the correct consent paperwork. N.B. anyone under 18 who turns up for a session without the correct paperwork signed by their parents will not be allowed to take part and no refunds will be given.
Strangley enough, not a lot. A taster session is just that, a taster. It's perfect for those people who just want to come along and have a go to see what it's all about.
Your instructor will get you kitted up in your climbing gear and then you will spend time in our rope bay climbing with ropes. You will then try your hand at bouldering. It's the simplest and most accessible form of climbing and the easiest way to get into the sport.
Climbing shoes and all technical equipment are included. You just need to bring a £1 (refundable) for a locker and a bottle of water (or buy one when you get here).
Basic gym wear is best. Please note that climbing walls get really hot in summer and a freezing in winter so dress appropriately.
The 90-minute session costs just £20.00 (please note that this does not include registration as a member of Mile End Climbing Wall).
Once your session is over you are free to leave the centre. You cannot just stay on and climb in the centre. If you do wish to carry on climbing without the supervision of the instructor you must report to reception, register, pay your registration and climbing fees and undertake an induction tour (over 18's only).
Times and days of the week vary so look through the list below and click on a session to book online.
Amazing taster session, looking forward to coming back

Great to try out rope climbing and bouldering in one session; clear instruction and supportive advice. It was really fun and I hope to be back in the future.

Very nice people but not much explaining regarding safety, especially on bouldering. I didn't feel very safe at the top of the bouldering wall. Otherwise it was a good experience.

Matt was a nice and patient instructor, we loved it! Considering it was our very first time, it left us with a good sense of excitement and curiosity to know more!
