Gloucester Climbing Centre has a variety of climbs, offers junior clubs, excellent catering, access 2 mins from city centre. Although offering an excellent place to climb the warehouse staff does not seem to have the right attitude, you can wait up to 10 minutes whilst the instructors finish discussing their climbing experiences before getting round to you. If they want to run the clubs for the juniors etc they really need to get their act together to realise that this clientele is slightly different to the majority of their normal climbers. It maybe that this isn't their forte but in the economic situation I think the attempted diversification to appeal to a greater audience needs either to be adopted wholehearteldly or dropped and another tack taken.
I found the clubs lack structure, there does not seem to be any communication between the parents as to the goals which are to be achieved by the youngster. The "training" is spasmodic dependant on the individual taking the lesson and seemingly their mood.
