Rock Climbing

Everyone from beginners to more experienced climbers will be tested by the wall’s 200m2 climbing surface, with its variety of slabs, overhanging walls, pinches, crimps, smears, pockets and jams. While beginners will be equipped and taken through the basics by our fully qualified instructors, coaching is available for regular climbers to improve their technique.

Furthermore, we are also an awarding centre for National Indoor Climbing Achievement Scheme (NICAS) Levels 1 and 2, which assesses the abilities of younger climbers.
