Climbing Tower & Traverse Wall

The introduction of the Traverse Wall in 2011 brought climbing activities back to patshull Scout Camp Site. Since then we have has a purpose designed and built climbing tower erected allowing us to provide climbing and abseiling as well.

Full climbing equipment is available including harnesses suitable for everyone, from Beaver Age to Adult.

The Traverse Wall can be booked as an individual activity or it is included free of charge when a booking is made for the Climbing Tower.

Patshull Activity Centre instructors are available for this activity. Two instructors are required to run this activity. Please refer to our Prices for details of cost.

Our Climbing Instructors have Scout Association authorisation for instructing this activity. Members of the Guide Association should enquire with the Warden about this activity.

The participating group must provide adequate supervision of all young people taking part. The Instructors responsibility is to safely instruct the activity – not to supervise the young people. As such, at least one adult leader must remain with the young people at all times.

Maximum group size on this activity at any one time is 12 people.

The final decision regarding safety will rest with the instructor. The Site will fully support any decision made by the instructor on the grounds of safety, be this either being due to weather conditions, unsuitable behaviour from a member(s) of the group (young people or adult) or problems with equipment.

If you are able to provide you own instructors but just wish to use the Site’s equipment then you will need to provide a copy of the proposed instructor’s qualifications when making your booking. If such documentation is not provided then the equipment will not be released for you to use.
If a Duty Warden or Site Instructor believes that an “Own Instructor” session is not being run safely, they will have the authority to intervene and stop any activity session.
