Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I meet you?
We normally leave arranging an exact venue until the day before to allow us to get the latest weather forecast and pick the best venue that match both your needs and weather conditions. We always meet you at the venue so you don’t waste climbing time traveling around. Where possible we endeavour to chose the closest appropriate location to you. Your Instructor will contact you the day before with detail instructors on how found the meeting point.
What kit do I need to bring with me?
RockUp-Climbing can provide all safety equipment but there are few things that it can be useful for you to bring with you.
Suitable footwear – We have a selection of climbing shoes but incase we do not have a pair that fit please bring footwear suitable for climbing in and the often rocky walk in’s to the crag. No flip-flops!
Warm clothes/Hat – It can often be colder on the crag than in the carpark so please make sure you have enough clothes incase the weather changes
Sun cream – Fingers crossed
Lunch/snacks – Lunch only required for full day bookings
Water – Climbing can be thirsty work!
Rucksack – To carry your spare items and few bits of the climbing kit
