Foyle Arena has two types of registration. The first is a Fully registered member, which is for competent climbers only and allows them to take part in roped climbing and Bouldering. We also have a Bouldering only registration which allows climbers to use the bouldering wall only. Please ask reception for the appropriate registration form when you arrive. A fully registered member can supervise a maximum of two people on wall. Bouldering only members are not allowed to supervise guests. Once approved, registered climbers can access the wall unsupervised for the activity they registered for. Beginners who cannot complete the registration process must attend one of our courses which will teach you the skills required to become an accredited user.
