Children

The safety of your children is of paramount importance. FASW staff will provide an initial briefing and training for your children, to ensure they will be safe, secure and confident on the courses.

The main safety points are listed below for your information and understanding:

  • Climbers 7 and 8 years old - ESSENTIAL - 1 climbing adult for every 2 children. However, for the best experience for your child, we RECOMMEND 1 climbing adult for every child.

    Adults are required to assist during some elements of the course.

  • Climbers 9 to 16 years - 1 adult (participation not required) for every 6 children, however we recommend extra supervising adults per group where possible.

FASW staff will explain to your children that they must:

  • Follow all instructions provided during the briefing

  • Start on the most appropriate course, as directed by staff, and only attempt courses appropriate for their age and height according to this table:
