    After a long time of top-rope climbing, my friends and I decided to do the Lead Climbing course to improve our climbing skills. We were taught by Mel (and her assistants) the proper rules and techniqu...  more »

    I had a fantastic time climbing this at the Big Rock centre week! The instructors Mel, Phil and Dave Watson were all excellent. I managed to climb routes I never thought I'd be able to. Crazy Climb wa...  more »

    This was the first time at an indoor climbing centre and cannot rate it highly enough. The staff (Phil, Dave and Mel) were extremely professional, friendly and informative and made sure our group got ...  more »

  • Fantastic staff and great holiday sessions available. My daughter was really struggling to go more than 4 feet up on the wall (was fine bouldering to the top though so I think it was trusting the ropes). Because the class ended up being one-on-one tuition the instructor climbed with her and was patient and encouraging all the way. Never forceful or short with her. She made so much progress and was happy to go all the way to the top on her own by the end of the session. I was so pleased that she got to experience that.
  • The best climbing centre I have taken the kids to. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. My two (9 and 6) love it here and have enjoyed Crazy Climb and the school holiday sessions they run. They also have lots of tables you can sit down at while the kids are climbing and a small cafe.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed my intro to climbing course here, big thanks to Mel and Phil who were the excellent course teachers - they had a lot of patience, were entertaining and great teachers. I'll definitely be back at some point, despite being a 50 mile drive.
  • Lovely centre, nice and light & airy. Decent cafe to fuel up and a good variety of problems. Only complaint is it's mostly slabs, has an arch & stalactites in the bouldering area but could do with more overhangs. Otherwise perfect.
  • Big Rock is small in size compared to other climbing centers, unfortunately this does not reflect in the price, costing well in excess of £10 per session including shoe hire. Fancy getting a membership? Well that would set you back many many hundreds of pounds. During peak times it's not even possible to participate since there are so many people and so little space. There's a shop with rediculously high prices too. Overall not really worth it.
