Suitable and welcoming for everyone
Nov 2017 • Friends
I've been visiting the High Sports centre at Plymouth's Life Centre since it opened, I mainly use the bouldering room but also use the auto-belay and top-rope routes on occasion. The routes in the bouldering room offer a challenge for a wide range of abilities and are refreshed regularly enough to keep even the most avid climber entertained, but not too regularly (you can come back on a later occasion to finish off any routes that beat you the week before for example). It is reasonably priced, the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable but best of all, the other people that attend are all very supportive and friendly regardless of your ability.

Nice atmosphere, good climbing roots
Sep 2017 • Friends
Something for everyone. Good sized bouldering room with roots that are changed regularly. There is a nice climbing wall shaped just like rock you can climb, Some auto belays. Some of the bigger climbing roots go up to 16-20 meters with some pretty impressive over hangs.

Great for meeting new people and improving techniques
Sep 2017
I started climbing in January and didn't have many friends at all or any confidence. Since climbing here I've met so many amazing people and I've become a new person! The staff are lovely and very helpful! They take great pride in their work and are always listening to people's suggestions on routes and what not. The routes are changed quite regularly which is great, especially when it's raining all of the time and you can't climb outside!
All in all, lovely place, lovely routes and brilliant staff :)

Lovely Staff, Great Freedom to Climb.
Jun 2017 • Couples
My boyfriend and I finally got round to visiting the climbing wall just before we leave university, after being recommended multiple times by friends it did not disappoint! Plenty of walls available for all ranges of experience with lovely staff (thanks especially to manager to Nikki for showing us the ropes, so to speak, and going above and beyond to make our first time awesome). Wish we'd come here sooner!!

Fun for climbing and socialising
Jun 2017 • Friends
I joined the wall this year and have felt really welcomed by not only the staff but also the community of climbers here. There's a bouldering room with regular route setting and a variety of high walls with the option to top rope or lead. The routes vary in style and level with something for everyone. People are always happy to share tips on routes and encourage you with a project, the supportive atmosphere makes you want to come back as often as possible! I found through buying a monthly pass that I go more often and my climbing has come on so much since I started in September. I'd definitely reccomend coming here if you're even remotely considering climbing!

Friendly wall with community feel
May 2017 • Friends
Spent many many many evenings at this wall, a great place to spend a few hours working on your climbing skills and hanging out with the best people you'll meet in Plymouth! I really enjoy the chilled low key vibe here, people are really welcoming. There's a great mix with the 16 meter, features wall and slabs, and a couple of auto-belays for if you fancy a climb but your mates are busy.
Staff are always super friendly and make an effort to get to know you and never mind giving you a few pointers when your stuck on a route!

Deffo worth getting a monthly pass and having the freedom to have unlimited climbs, it's fun squeezing an hour or so here and there and seeing how much of your monies worth you can get! ;)

Great Place
May 2017 • Friends
The staff are so helpful and friendly and the place is great! For students it is especially good as reduced rates make it possible to climb more often. The rock start courses have really helped me understand climbing and the instructors couldn't do more to assist

Great introduction into rope climbing
May 2017 • Solo
I've been there 3 times now, for a course called RockStarter. The instructors are friendly, helpful and good at explaining. I passed my safety test and can't wait to get back onto the wall.
