Lizard Intro Course
Hello and welcome to The Lizards Club here at The Leeds Wall. The Club runs after school and on the weekends. Members are aged 6 to 17 and of all abilities. It's a great way to experience climbing in a safe environment.
The Club is split in to age/ability groups; Geckos, Chameleons and Dragons with each group being progressively older and more experienced. Sessions are 1.5 hours in duration and are booked each half term throughout the year. Children are offered recognition of their progress with the National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme(NICAS).
Once children reach the age of 14 they can learn to lead climb and work towards taking the Junior Assessment. This allows them, with parental consent to come and climb at the centre outside of the supervised sessions. They may still attend the Leeds Wall Climbing Club on a weekend when an instructor is on hand to give them coaching.
The Lizard Intro course is 2 hours. Club sessions are then 1.5 hours. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your start time. The safety briefing and harnessing is included within the time allocated.

Spectators are welcome and can watch from our viewing area. Our cafe is open on evenings and weekends and there are vending machines for refreshments. Please note self catering for groups and birthday parties is not allowed on site. Remember your camera for some great photos.
To join the club you need to attend the Lizard Intro where our instructors will introduce the basic climbing skills and safety information for the centre. At the end of the course children are allocated to a group and registered. You can then start to attend straight away knowing what to expect*.
