    Terrible parking, not the best climbing venue. Simple wall a novice could tackle. Would not go again and recommend you go to the place near Bramall lane  more »

  • Great route setting. Routes reset regularly. Lots of routes for every ability level.
  • The staff are lovely and very helpful. This, the lovely cafe and the really decent taste in music they seem to have really make the climbing works an excellent place to get some enjoyable exercise
  • Really good. Unlike some places the holds don't seem to spin presumably because they are installed properly. The problems are great and offer varied difficulty in an easy to follow system that allows progression. Holds get hot pressure washed between changes so have great friction at the start of a setting. 50p tea! A tolerance of hot takeaways. Pizza oven fresh pizzas reliably served outside on certain days. Friendly and efficient staff. Occasionally seems a little too busy in the winter but I guess that's what happens when you offer the best bouldering in a climbing city, acknowledgement for the mini works across the car park which keeps the kids safe.
  • Great staff. Decent coffee. Enough easy problems for a fat lazy punter like me.
  • Going to the works is like going home. Such a great friendly welcoming atmosphere. The routes are always awesome, challenging and varied. Regular route changes means you don't get bored. Great coffee too.
