  • To be fair I’m only leaving this because one of the staff upset me, still, I would never return to this place. Someone asked me which loops the autobelay goes through. Craggy is the throwback no...  more »
  • To be honest, its full of gumbies with the worst climbing etiquette I have experienced. Inexperienced staff also show very little knowledge during the safety procedure.  more »
  • We had a private lesson booked. We messed up and were late but the staff went overboard to help. We had Beth teach us and have to say she was excellent, a true natural teacher My 5 year old son is....  more »
  • I do not know where on earth they find all the people who work here, but they are an incredible bunch. My young SEN son has been met with patience, kindness, and just the right amount of 'push' which has allowed him to build physical strength and confidence. Even the cafe is lovely! This place is a gem.
  • Great set of routes with delightful staff, an amazing shop and a small bouldering wall with some interesting problems. The shop was small but packed full of gear - my partner and I both bought our new shoes with some really helpful advice from the employees. Not great bouldering for beginners such as myself but the routes more than make up for it with a big mix in difficulty. We came for the shop and were pleasantly surprised when the rest of the climbing and we barely scratched the surface.
  • Good for serious climbers and also for beginners of all ages. There's a cafe on site with good fresh and healthy food options as well as coffees, teas and delicious fresh hot chocolate.
  • Great selection of roped routes with a good bouldering area too. 8 auto belays makes for good solo sessions and there are new routes every week or so. The grades are quite harsh compared to other gyms but this only leads to crushing similar grades when going outside. :)
  • Loved it! It’s a great, little climbing center with plenty of climbing walls to keep you busy. Also has a spectators area, cafe, changing rooms, auto and manual belays, climbing lessons and climbing equipment to hire. Fully recommended for the daredevils!
