  • Really great climbing centre, had a few sessions here with the trainers, it's staffed with knowledgeable climbers and they do encourage you to do your best. As you can imagine, there are quite a few tall routes and a dedicated bouldering room, there is also an ice room, where you can climb up an ice wall! The cafe and shop are well stocked and there is lots of parking available. Great time to be had by all.
  • Tom was an awesome instructor! And we had so much fun!! We are both climbers but this was super different and so worth doing. If we are ever back in town, we will be back for another go!
  • Enjoyed ice climbing instruction with Anne Rebecca. Really good morning, her expectations made me climb higher. She was observant the whole time giving helpful personalised feedback, and remembered the issues of being a beginner. Went the extra mile and wrote out some other places we might like to visit. Thanks Anne.
  • Had a day outdoor rock climbing with Pete yesterday and it was fab! The views were amazing and it was such a great experience for us 4 beginners! Pete on the other hand was exceptional. He took his time and explained it all to us and was nothing but patient! I was absolutely petrified and he was so calming and reassuring throughout! The day would not have been the same without Pete🌟
  • I came here last week with a group who were all really keen to do some rock climbing - I wasn't quite so keen, being scared of heights. Our instructor, Mark, was great - really enthusiastic and positive even when faced with a scaredy cat like myself. I've already recommended this place to friends who climb. Thanks for as pleasant an experience as I could hope for when facing my fears! :)
