Climbing Wall

Our 7m high main wall has routes from the simple to the technically complex we’ve got something for all levels and abilities. The routes are set making use of a variety of different sized and types of hold along with natural features which form part of the wall. Routes are graded and changed regularly.

Our bouldering wall allows climbing without using ropes and harness (free climbing). This wall is not very high and is ideal for children to learn the basics
