Frequently asked questions

I’VE CLIMBED BEFORE, DO I STILL HAVE TO FILL IN A SAFETY WAIVER?

If it’s your first visit to Substation then yes, you will need to complete a waiver. However, you only need to do a Substation facility waiver once every 2 years and we’ll send you an automatic reminder when your waiver is about to expire.

WHAT ACCESS DO I GET WITH MY DAY PASS?

Your day pass gives you access to Substation climbing facilities and cafe during opening hours. Arrive anytime and stay as long as you like!

IS THERE A MINIMUM AGE?

No, anyone can climb with us. Under 18s need one adult supervisor to every two children. 14-17 year olds can climb without a supervisor once they have completed an assessment to climb unsupervised with a parent or guardian present.

DO YOU HAVE LOCKERS AVAILABLE?

Yes, there are a limited number of coded lockers in the Male & Female changing rooms and a lot of lockers in the main climbing space that require you to bring a lock.

DO I ALWAYS HAVE TO BOOK IN ADVANCE?

No, you can always purchase passes at reception but we do have a capacity so during peak times we recommend booking to guarantee access.

IS MY SESSION TRANSFERABLE OR REFUNDABLE IF I CANNOT MAKE THE SESSION?

Please email macclesfield@substation.co.uk and we will do our best to accommodate any change requests.

I LEFT MY THINGS AT SUBSTATION, WILL THEY STILL BE THERE?

Each night we collect all items left behind and store them in our lost and found. Please ask reception for your belongings next time you’re in.

Do you offer wheelchair access?

There is access into the cafe and toliets but the rest of the building is not wheelchair accessible.
