  • The wall’s certification has now been renewed and so it has been reopened for bookings.
  • However please note instructor availability for 2019 is limited.  We can in most cases only provide Quarries instructors on Monday to Wednesday evenings at present, and this may be limited to one session a week first come first served, and such sessions cannot start before 6:30pm.
  • For weekend bookings or bookings at other times you are most welcome to book to use the wall with your own Scout Climbing Permit-holding instructor.

Ascend the dizzying heights of The Wall at The Quarries

We recommend:-
 – Group of up to 8 – 1 hour
 – Group of up to 12 – 1.5 hours
 – Group of up to 16 – 2 hours
and so on.  If you book a shorter session than we recommend it may not be possible for all your participants to have a go.
Please note – bookings will not go “confirmed” until a few weeks beforehand when we allocate an instructor – so don’t worry…when you book your time is reserved for you and someone else can’t double book it! We will contact you if there are any issues getting an instructor for your chosen time.

Guiding and other non-Scout bookings – Due to the shortage of Guiding permitted / NGB qualified instructors we are unable at this time to confirm bookings for Guiding or other non-Scouting purposes unless you are providing your own appropriately qualified instructors. We’re sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.  This does not affect any bookings we have already accepted.

Big Rock Climbing operate a commercial climbing centre at the Kingston Centre by Tesco/Costco and another in Bletchley.  They may be able to help if you need a non-Scout session (Other climbing providers may be available) –

Please note this process does exclusively covers the Climbing Wall.
