Introduction to Rockclimbing – 4 evenings

Belay Training - 2-3 evenings

This training focuses solely on safety, equipment and belay skills. Once climbers reach the required standard they are then ' approved' and can access the rockwall as detailed below:
Indoor Rockwall - Public access
Kilfinane OEC is home to a state of the art Indoor Rockwall. The wall has been designed for use by all abilities and includes bouldering areas, 19 roped climbs, 14 lead routes & a belay ledge for practising multi-pitch skills.
Our rockwall is open for Public access but must be pre-booked as the wall is very busy. Our Public access allows climbers who have successfully completed belay training to use the rockwall by themselves without supervision by KOEC staff. The rockwall can be use by 'approved' climbers at any time when the Centre is open and the rockwall is not is use for groups. Please contact our office to book as opening hours vary each week.
