Beginners Courses

Never climbed before but want to give it a go?   Why not try our Beginners Course.  

Climbing is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. It is a fantastic way to exercise, and all in a great social setting to enjoy with friends. Its the holy grail of exercise – a mix of resistance training and aerobic workout, with serious carb burn and great for developing flexibility and agility. Research shows a full on climbing session burns 600 – 1,000 calories per hour!

Our Beginners Course will allow you to use the White Spider centre unsupervised.  No previous experience is needed and they are a great way to meet other new climbers.

New Route Cards

colour box image

We are always trying to improve your climbing experience at White Spider Climbing and our latest improvement is to colour code particular grade ranges on the route display cards.

For example, if you climb grades up to 6a+ you will be a green and blue climber. You can then look around the centre for routes based on theses colours, and even if you can’t read the grades from a distance you will quickly be able to identify all the routes in those colour ranges that you can climb!

We always love to hear from you so let us know what you think of this or any other ideas on our feedback forms.

Enjoy!

New Core Climbing Boulder Circuits

Pink Hold
Core Climbing Logo

We are excited to introduce another 15 problem boulder circuit at White Spider, the new pink circuit. We have selected some generously sized, interesting and skin friendly holds from our friends at “Core Climbing” in Sheffield. The grade for this circuit is VB. B stands for beginner or basic and as the name suggests it is an ideal circuit for those new to bouldering or who want something basic to warm up on.
However the main reason we introduced it was because climbers that were climbing higher grades had so much more to choose from because they could climb most or all of the circuits. Climbers still developing their skills and strength had less to choose from and we wanted to offer more. We recognised that we could improve and we acted on it.
In addition, and to spread the grades out in the easier circuits, the 15 problem purple V0 circuit has now moved up a notch and is graded at V0 to V1, and we’ve also bumped up the 15 problem yellow V0 to V1 circuit up to V1 to V2.
We are happy to be offering so much more choice for our climbers in all grades and the feedback has been awesome.
See you on the wall!
