We did a family session with our two girls (8 & 13). The tuition and guidance from Jess was first class. Everyone felt fully briefed and safe and the kids were encouraged to do more challenging routes whilst also positively encouraging their efforts. A fantastic holiday experience.

Took our first time climbers aged 11, 10 and 6 to try the crazy climb the instructor's were great didn't catch their names but they were fantastic with the children which put me at ease as I could tell they were in safe hands. They helped them when they needed help and gave them advice and encouragement. It was lovely to see my children's confidence growing throughout eventually getting to the top. Staff were friendly and it was a lovely atmosphere. My children really enjoyed and want to come back. We're from South Wales but we definitely want to come back to caernarfon again and make a return visit to the beacon. Highly recommended.

My friend booked us both an hour’s climb experience and we had the highly entertaining expertise of Pete Swift and Jess Day.
It was the most fun I’d had in a long time. They were both brilliant.
The welcome was warm and everyone made us feel at home, including another awesome dude called Pete. After wanting to start climbing properly for what’s, I can’t wait to come back - got the bug, now. 🧗‍♀️
We arrived and enjoyed a pre-climb flat white (with Oat milk no less) ...and ended the afternoon with a yummy, baked spud and 🌱 vegan bean chilli from the cafe.
The centre is huge with so many walls to try. We really enjoyed the bouldering area too.
Cheers guys, for everything! ♥️

My brother and I have taken our four kids (aged between 5-8) to the Beacon Climbing Centre several times during the last 6 weeks. All kids started with Crazy Climb. Two of them have since moved on to weekly classes.

I am incredibly impressed with the professionalism and support of every member of staff that I have spoken with so far. Jess was very supportive of one child in particular, who was too scared to climb, and helped to build up their confidence to do so (he was later heard shouting her name at the top of the climbing wall!). She was also awesome with our Downes Syndrome boy, who absolutely loves the Crazy Climb.

Sam was excellent at teaching the two girls to use the bigger wall. His teaching instructions were fun and memorable. He was brilliant at encouraging the two girls and supporting their learning; he knew exactly where they were in their development and what they needed to do next to progress further.

Joe and Fergus ran the kids' first Crazy Climb session and were definitely instrumental in us returning back to the centre.

Would thoroughly recommend a visit here, my kids have always loved the whole experience of crazy climb, so we decided to do the parents belaying course so they could further their climbing experience. We were in a group of four being instructed by Kim Sam and Pete the children enjoyed climbing all the assents available to them. Whilst we learnt how to keep them safe whilst climbing in the correct way. Couldn’t fault our tutors very professional, attentive at all times, so helpful and patient I have to say their knowledge and feedback made the 2 sessions of 2 hours fly by. Good value for money and a fun filled evening of learning to belay and boulder - thanks again Kim Sam & Pete you were fantastic!!

I wanted the children to try something new and a friend had taken their child here. My 8 and 9 year old were very nervous but the instructors soon put them at ease. They go through a safety check and harness them up and away they go. An hour of trying out different climbs, with encouragement from the instructors, and I have two sweaty kids on my hands. They turned from two nervous kids to kids asking if they could come again next week. I highly recommend bringing your children here.

Been here fairly regularly and thought it was about time I wrote a review.
I really like this climbing centre. It caters for all.
Good kids climbing, good route setting and plenty for more advanced climbers.
The training set up is brilliant especially since the arrival of the kilter board.
Also good to see a nice cafe.
Only reason it’s not 5/5 is that sometimes it can be way too busy, this tends to be the case on bad weather days. Obviously good in one way as it’s popular for a reason but it can be too much.

My daughter celebrated her 10th birthday with her friends at Crazy Climb. We had exclusive use of Crazy Climb with 14 girls. The girls were instructed by two young men, but I felt safe leaving them in their care (having previous experience of attending another party there recently).

I also booked the party room and paid per head for the birthday food, which was great. All we had to bring were the party bags, birthday cake and balloons. We also decorated the room with birthday banners and with helium balloons so the room, although small, was plenty big enough for 14 children, and looked nice. There was an aux cable and speakers so that we could play the party music from my phone using songs that we had downloaded from Spotify. I'm still not sure if the room had wifi or not as I didn't try to play songs that we hadn't downloaded beforehand. A great service from all the young staff. My only suggestion is that it would have been nice to have Welsh speaking instructors for local Welsh speaking children. A great venue for a party celebration. Diolch yn fawr.

A great time was had by CJ - it was her first time at Crazy Climb and she was raring to go and I afraid to try and keep trying to get further up each challenge she attempted. It was clear she loved it much the same as the other kids and adults who were trying it out. She said she would definitely go again and I would highly recommend it.

We turned up with no plan with no prior booking and were made welcome and fit in for a session with an instructor within the hour. Sam, who was our instructor, was excellent. He gave us all individual skilled instruction and was calm, friendly and relaxed. We had an instructive and enjoyable session.
Thanks Sam.
