We have some of the best facilities on offer for your Scout group visit, whether you want to just boulder or take to the ropes, or venture through our 200ft of indoor caving experience. We can accommodate groups of up to 80 people (subject to instructor availability) and the kids won’t be lacking for choice either. We have over 150 boulder problem, 100 lines of climbing with 300 routes on offer, an onsite cafe facility and subject to notice we can even offer you exclusive use of our back climbing room for your session! That’s 80 routes and 40 lines of roped climbing just for your group.
We have hosted hundreds of scout visits over the years, so why not experience what we have to offer and give us a call on (0121) 449 8000 to discuss your requirements.
Our standard group rates are £66 for the first hour (maximum 8 people) and £36 thereafter. Prices include VAT at the prevailing rate.
What does the caving experience consist of?
Your instructor will lead you in to the cave through the entrance hatch, and it’s a short crawl to the first collecting area. Here we will gauge how the group is doing, and any unhappy cavers can be easily evacuated. You will then venture through some longer twisting tunnels, either separately, or as a team and then venture up in to the mine.
From here your instructor has multiple tunnels to choose from, in any direction, and they will pick the best one based on how he/she feels the group’s abilities are.
Time tends to disappear quickly in the cave and a group of 6 people will lose an hour in no time at all.
What’s included in my session?
This is up to you. We can provide bouldering, roped climbing and caving opportunities, it all depends on the number of people you are bringing and how long you are staying. Our cave system has a maximum of 6 people per instructor for safety reasons, but on the ropes and with bouldering we can accommodate a 1:8 ratio comfortably.
The name of the game is to have fun and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
