Blue Spider Climbing

Places to Visit

Blue Spider (formerly Craggy Island) opened nearly 20 years ago, and is one of the largest roped walls in Surrey. We offer a range of roped climbing and bouldering, as well as a busy coaching programme!

Youth climbing programmes at Blue Spider help children develop coordination, strength, balance, patience and confidence, encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle in an accessible and inclusive way. Thousands of young people enjoy climbing up and down the country, and Spider proudly offer our own tailored programmes; all delivered with professionalism, enthusiasm and care.

They have around 400 young people enrolled in weekly climbing clubs, from aged 5 through to teenage years. All classes and courses are tailored for age group and ability level, and each climber follows a structured programme of achievement. Many young climbers have achieved recognition and results in national competitions.

Spider Climbing Members can climb at all five of the Spider centres. Find out about Memberships here.

Our Termly clubs are simply the best way to keep your kids fit and active. Our instructors are fully qualified and passionate about their sport, and love nothing more than passing on their knowledge to the next generation of climbers. We have a few options for kids clubs:
