Top rope climbing

Our Top rope climbing zone offers a range of top rope walls up to 6m tall. Buttresses and overhangs, aretes, slab and corners, combined with a wide range of graded routes means that novice and experienced climbers alike can enjoy the thrills of rock climbing. Our top rope climbing walls offer over 95 sq m of climbing surface with 14 rope lines. The top rope climbing minimum age is 6 but parents must consider if their child is mature enough to undertake this difficult and demanding sport.

Training courses and private tuition are available to teach the basics of indoor rock climbing. For further details of training courses, please click here

Supervised top rope taster sessions last 90 minutes and start at a time to suit you. Each session costs 57 per group of 6 climbers. These sessions are intended to give a flavour of conventional roped climbing - it does not include tuition.

Novices and all children under 15 (excepting those with NICAS Level 2) are required to work in groups of 3 so it is important that customers determine that appropriate partners are available. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee availability of climbing partners during supervised top rope climbing sessions. All safety equipment is provided. Climbing shoes can be rented.

Open top rope sessions are suitable for experienced climbers. Most sessions are suitable for all ages, but Thursday and Friday evening are reserved for pre-booked adults only.

Each open top rope session costs 6.50 for a registered climber. Daily registration costs 1 or 10 for a year. Adults can download the registration form beforehand
here. Competent climbers aged 15 and over can climb unsupervised, but we need to see a parent sign their consent so the form is not available on-line.

All climbers wishing to climb during open sessions must demonstrate their basic competence before climbing. Safety equipment and climbing shoes may be rented if required
