Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I meet you?
We normally leave arranging an exact venue until the week before to allow us to get the latest weather forecast and pick the best venue to match both your needs and the weather conditions. We always meet you at the venue so you don’t waste climbing time traveling around. Your Instructor will be in touch with you the week before the course, with details about how to find 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 would be useful for you to bring with you.
Suitable footwear – Please bring footwear suitable for the often rocky walk in’s to the crag. No flip-flops!
Warm clothes/Hat – It can often be colder at 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 climbing kit we'll lend out during the day
