If you’re over 18 and never climbed before, you can come to Mad Volume, watch the induction video and be climbing within 15 minutes. If you feel you need more guidance you can come to one of our Newbie Sessions. One of the great things about climbing, is chatting to other climbers and learning from them, this is something we really encourage. Our staff are always happy to answer any questions on safety or technique.
Organised Climbing Sessions
These sessions are free and lead by one instructor. To take part you must be registered as an unsupervised climber. These sessions are designed to help climbers meet other climbers and encourage peer to peer learning, with an instructor on hand to provide some gentle guidance, if required.
Led by either Mike or Amanda, this session is for those who have been inducted and signed off as a competent climber. Every Friday at 7pm until 9pm, this session is a great opportunity to climb and make friends in a supportive and positive environment.
We know that when you first start climbing you might not know anyone to climb with, so this session is designed to fix that. If you're looking to improve your climbing by picking up a few tips on technique, this session could be good for you as well. Again, the main focus is about having fun and learning from each other.
Led by Amanda, this session is for women to meet one another, climb together and support each other in a fun, non-intimidating environment.
This weekly social is a great opportunity for ladies to learn new skills and techniques from like-minded and enthusiastic female climbers. Relaxed and pressure-free, this session aims to build confidence and promote positivity for female climbers of all abilities.
Non climbing Classes
The exercise studio is equipped with yoga mats and callisthenic apparatus. It is free for climbers to use, except when there's an instructor led class on.
Our yoga instructor, Ollie Wheatley, leads a climbing specific yoga session for all abilities. Best to book in advance for this class.
Our instructor Joel Wilkinson, leads a class designed to develop the muscle strength and grace of movement needed for bouldering. All equipment is provided in the exercise room, which is free to use outside of classes.
Mad Volume is based at The Worx (The Old Hull Daily Mail Building) on the corner of Spring Bank & Beverley Road, just a few minutes from St Stephen's Shopping Centre and both the Bus and Train Station.
