Welcome back!

It's been two weeks since we opened our doors, and we are so happy to see everyone climbing at the centre again! The centre has undergone a transformation during the closure with a full centre refurbishment and route reset to freshen up and improve our climbing facilities for you!

The entire centre has had a lick of paint including all the climbing walls. Every single route is fresh and created by our route setting team over a full week of route setting. Climbers can get to grips with new holds and volumes from leading brands Blue Pill and XCult!

Since we opened, we have been thrilled to receive some amazing reviews. Here's a snippet, to find out what our customers are saying and leave your own reviews just head over to Trip Advisor and Facebook

'very reassuring COVID safety guidance'

'significant investment and wall reshaping, new holds and style of setting'

'all feeling very safe and co-ordinated'

'loads of safety precautions in place felt so safe visiting'

If you haven't visited us yet there are some things you need to know in advance. We have some new operating procedures in place to make sure you can always climb safely. Please read COVID-19 Policies and Procedures before your visit.

A brand-new style of route setting and new grading system!
It is now even easier to find climbs thanks to our new simplified grading system. The easy to follow traffic light grading system groups problems into easy, mid and hard categories.

To find out more about the new style of setting be sure to come along for Adult Improver to chat to our friendly coaching team - we are always happy to help.

New menu

Cake Fridays

A cuppa and a piece of cake after climbing is a hard combo to beat! We have enlisted the skills of a local chef to make a vegan friendly cake each week - when it's gone, it's gone!
