External Instructors

Qualified climbing instructors are welcome to bring their own groups to Reading Climbing Centre. All you need to do is bring in a copy of your qualification certificate (SPA/RCI or CWA/CWI or higher), your current First Aid certificate and the insurance document that covers you working with your group.

You don’t need to book in advance to bring your own group to Reading Climbing Centre, although if you are planning to bring a very big group it is better to call ahead to make sure no other large groups are due in the centre. This allows us to make sure there is enough wall space for your group to have a great session!

Groups coming into the wall with an external instructor are charged as follows:


Per Session – £8
Half Day (4hrs) – £32
Full Day (8hrs) – £64


Standard peak or off-peak entry fees apply. Pre-paid passes are valid for externally instructed sessions.

Instructors are asked to work within our maximum group ratios of 1:9 and work within their relevant qualification.
