New climbers of all ages can learn in a safe and fun environment on our Action Walls. The centre also includes full amenties, a café, shower facilities, function rooms and classes.

State of the art indoor climbing centre with Tall Walls, Bouldering, Action Walls and Café.

Ever growing in popularity, bouldering is a fun way to climb without ropes. We have over 200m2 at 4.5m high with 1m overhang spread on two levels. This is a fantastic work out for all abilities with climbing problems set out for you and changed on a regular basis, varying in levels of difficulty.

Ingeniously designed to challenge all ages and provide lots of fun. Perfectly suited for beginners or experienced climbers looking for fun competitive challenges.

Our lead walls provides a 12m high challenge to even the most experienced of climbers with 1-3m overhang, regular route changes by experienced setters, 28 lines plus 5 auto belays in the North Corner all in a 300m2 specifically designed space.

Climbing is a unique group activity, ideal for birthday parties, families, corporate events and organised group outings.

Here at Climbing the Walls we provide the ideal setting for a birthday party with a difference, organising a birthday party for your special child can be a major undertaking and as a busy parent you don’t want to be spending days phoning venues, or thinking of ways to keep party guests entertained.

FAQ’s

You do not need to have any previous experience to come climb with us. We have many different programs to suit the complete beginner; so come see us or check out our website and see what we can offer you.

Registration for Action Walls only takes a few minutes and it’s often easier to do it at home so when you arrive for your first climb you’re all set to go. Action Walls is the only activity which requires registration.

We advise you wear something that allows for a lot of movement and you feel comfortable, general sports gear is great. Climbing shoes are VITAL. If you do not have climbing shoes they are available for hire.

Each problem is set in a single colour from start to finish. There is a label next to the first hand hold on each problem which lets you know the grade of that problem. Advice on the grades Vb, Vb+, V0, etc can be obtained from reception or by asking a member of staff.

If you are using Action Walls, you need to book ahead to avoid disappointment. No need to book for bouldering and Tall Walls.

 

Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw form. Leaving behind your ropes and harnesses giving you the opportunity to go freestyle, safe in the knowledge the safety mats will catch your fall. Bouldering requires balance, technique, strength and will work your brain to conquer the routes set out for you. You don’t need experience to give it a go – making it really easy to get into if you’ve never tried it before.

When you come for your first climb, you’ll complete our induction process which will help you understand how to use the centre safely. If you want further guidance, you can book a Taster session which gives you some coaching with a member of staff. A lot of people learn to climb simply by watching others, or joining more experienced friends, and we run a beginners course if you’d like to really get to grips with the basics under the watchful eye of an instructor.

The minimum age we can cater for is 5 years old. Our tall walls may be intimidating for younger children and our action walls are not designed for anyone under 5.

Climbing The Walls Ltd: Directors Statement

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have taken the decision to close Climbing The Walls until Easter 2021.

The closure will take effect from 10pm on Thursday 15th October 2020.

As you can imagine, this is not a decision we have taken lightly but as a financially secure local company who physically interacts with the local community, we feel this decision is the perfect balance between being financially responsible for the future of the business and also the best ethical solution we could make given recent infection growth and the approaching Winter Wave!

Our sincerest and heartfelt thanks to our loyal staff and customers during these testing times.

We will be refunding all current bookings and pausing or refunding all membership dues. We thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and support during this time and we will use our best endeavours to refund all booking revenues by the end of the month.

This inbox will continue to be monitored on an intermittent basis.

This strategic decision will create time for some new world thinking in regard to the management/ownership/operation of the Climbing Centre and for us to consider and explore in detail, a wide variety of operating and tenancy options moving forward post pandemic to ensure the success of the centre when it re-opens.

If any individual, organisation or climbing community groups are interested in taking this vibrant, successful Climbing Centre forward post-pandemic please contact our Director Kevin Murphy via email:  enquiries@climbingthewalls.club FAO Kevin Murphy

Many Thanks

The Board of Directors of Climbing The Walls Limited
