Geckos Climbing for Kids London

The Castle Climbing Centre, London N4 2HA London South East England Greater London N4 2HA


Apart from being both challenging and brilliant fun, climbing offers a number of benefits for children:

It improves balance, coordination, fitness and strength

It helps build self-confidence

It teaches better understanding of risk and how to manage it

We deliberately teach in groups of mixed age, gender and ability and the stress is very much on enjoying the activity for its own sake. While a number of ex-Geckos (including Louis, Jo and Jim) have gone on to compete internationally, or (like Doug) work in the climbing and outdoor industries, many (like Rachel) continue to enjoy it purely as a hobby, albeit one that introduces them to the wonders of bouldering, lead-climbing and abseiling.
