Eden’s Kids Rock club is offering young people the chance to reach new heights by scaling Bodelva’s rock-face each Saturday morning.

The classes, which are suitable for those aged seven to 16, start at 9:30am in the Visitor Centre and go on until 11:30am.

Sessions are designed to help participants build their skills and confidence, while working towards a qualification awarded by the National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme. 

Whether keen climbers or absolute beginners, children and teenagers can get to grips with the basics of rock climbing on the Climbing Wall high above the Biomes.

They can also have a go at the new Bouldering Wall, which offers problem-solving challenges to climbers of all abilities as well as the experience of outdoor climbing without the need for ropes and safety equipment.

Mike Olivant, Duty Manager at Eden said: “We have a brilliant outdoor, all-weather facility here. We are really pleased to be able to use it to help children challenge themselves, learn new skills and even gain an official qualification.”

The club, which runs every Saturday until November 3, costs £7 a session. To book a place, contact the Eden Box Office on 01726 811972 or email
