Do you want to get more involved with your child’s climbing at Beacon Climbing Centre? Our great value Parent Belaying Course will allow you to do just that!

This course is aimed at parents who want to take their child climbing independently of our instructor supervised Weekly Kids’ Club sessions, but don’t necessarily want to climb themselves. Each adult attending the course brings along their child, and during the course the parent does the learning and the child does the climbing.

The course also includes an informal assessment of what you’ve learnt, and upon completion you will be able to bring your child to Beacon and use the climbing facilities independently of instructor led sessions. Please note that we do not charge an entry fee for parents who are attending Beacon solely to belay children.

Course details.

– Managing your child’s safety within the climbing centre.
– Fitting equipment.
– Basic rope work and belaying.

Price: £30 for 1 parent (including 1 child).
Duration: 4 hours split over 2 sessions, 2:00pm-4:00pm.
