3 Wise Monkeys Charter

  1. We know climbing is dangerous. We will never compromise on safety.
  2. We’re part of the climbing community; we want everyone in that community to feel welcome and respected.
  3. We welcome challenges and are willing to try. If our coach sets us a challenge it's for a reason and we’ll try our best. 
  4. We understand we don’t need to compete with our teammates to improve - we are our own competition.
  5. We’re here to learn movement mastery, build mental toughness and make physical gains, not just chase climbing grades.

We mainly focus on getting out climbing, though our members are keen hillwalkers, scramblers and mountaineers too. We focus on any form of climbing both indoor and out and we aim to show our members the amazing opportunities climbing brings, and teach them how to climb safely and respect the ethos of the sport, both indoor and out."

Club activities include:

  • Outdoor climbing events

  • Indoor climbing sessions

  • Learn new climbing skills

  • Coaching

  • Skills training for interested parents

    You can contact the club over on their Facebook page.
