Individuals & Family Activities

OTR Individuals and Families Focus

Because one of our main purposes is to build community OTR would like to encourage you as an individual or as a family to join us for a climbing taster session. We have worked with hundreds of people teaching them to climb and found that many people enjoy climbing as a family activity.

What We Can Offer You

OTR offers a range of opportunities for individuals and families. These include:

Climbing Taster

Arrange a climbing taster session with us to discover more about the sport.  We know of people who have given up their gym membership so they can focus on climbing as they find it a more effective form of exercise.  Whether you are looking for exercise or something new that’s fun to do our taster session will help you make up your mind.

Learn to Climb Course (individual or family)

This course is a follow on from the taster session and teaches you all you need to know to become an independent climber.  On completion of this course you will have the skills and knowledge required to become a member of your local climbing centre and use their facilities.

NICAS (National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme)

OTR can offer this scheme to individuals or groups who are aged 8-25.  The scheme has five levels and is suitable for those new to climbing as well as experienced climbers. Please take a look at the scheme by following this link:

Sponsored Event

Are you looking to raise money for charity and need an event that’s a little different from a sponsored walk or car wash? Then talk to OTR about a sponsored climbing event. OTR recently helped a community group raise £2,500 for the Red Nose Day Appeal. This community group included pupils, teachers, parents, local police and faith groups.  They climbed the equivalent of Mt. Kilimanjaro at their local climbing centre. 19,454 ft in five and a half hours!

Birthday Parties

OTR offers birthday parties for groups up to 12. The session can be tailored to your requirements.  The centre we use has a party room on site so you can have your party meal and games as soon as the climbing is finished.

Stag/Hen Do’s

OTR offers Hen and Stag parties with a difference. Have fun, face a challenge, do something original!  Take part in one of our climbing challenges as part of your Hen/Stag weekend and we will put your fee into our community fund and use the money to work with disadvantaged people in the community.  Have fun and make a difference in someone else’s life.
