Do you dare do the Leap of Faith?
If you've ever wanted to try out climbing but don't know if you would like it or where to start, then this is the perfect place for you.

Clip 'n Climb Exeter is where it all started in the UK back in 2011, and they have now expanded to many different sites around the country, so no matter where you are in the UK, it's likely there will be one near you.

We were looking for a new challenge to do with our kids and something they hadn't tried before when we stumbled upon this place while going for a walk along Exeter Quay.

It's fun to take part, and it lets you challenge yourself with twenty-six different walls to try. Some have timers with a stop button at the top to enhance the challenge. Try the leap of faith, where you have to climb to the top of a tower then jump off and grab a bar that's suspended in front of you.

Kids can climb from 4 years old and over 120cm tall, and all climbers must be under 150kg; this is to ensure that their safety auto belay system works as this is the device that controls your descent back down keeping you safe.

The price is the same for all participants, and each session starts with all climbers watching an instruction video that provides safety information. Even though we visited many times and knew everything in the video, we still had to watch it each time as it is a health and safety requirement.

If you enjoy your climbing experience and want to continue and move to more advanced walls, the staff can provide you with help and information on how to do this. They have sessions designed to help kids and adults learn more advanced techniques of climbing with the added advantage that it is a cheaper way to climb.

Parents or anyone who is not climbing can grab a coffee and snack in the cafe that overlooks the climbing walls. It's also an excellent place to get some good pictures of those climbing.

Sessions take around an hour and a half, which is more than enough time for anyone not used to climbing as you will likely be tired afterwards. They have free lockers to keep all your gear safe while climbing - you just need a coin to use them.
