  • Had a Bouldering Intro with my partner and the staff were super friendly and so helpful. Would definitely recommend. Great for those Welsh rainy days!!
  • Spent an afternoon here due to poor weather. Didn't get a chance to get on the ropes but enjoyed the bouldering with a decent selection of interesting problems and a punishingly big cave area!
  • Another fantastic time at Beacon climbing centre. Aled 8yrs completed all the climbs for the first time and iola 6yrs climbed to the top of 4 climbs. Two very happy children. Thank you Max for the way you ran the session. Loads of support and encouragement and plenty of fun. Perfect, well done!
  • Expensive as climbing walls go. Good cafe. Plenty to do.
  • My brother (aged 14) and I (aged 16) went here to climb. My mother and grandmother came to watch. I was impressed at the walls and the routes. I went to pay but they said that I needed to be supervised by someone over 18 who climbs. However my mother has arthritis and cannot climb. The staff member that we spoke to was blatantly rude and made it so that I do not want to go back.
