Staff, venue were great, (very cold inside so take a jumper/jacket until you warm up) My kids loved the class, the only down factor was, you're there for hour and half and they only climbed 3 times, which would equate to about 10 mins. They...More

We started climbing in October and having been weekly visitors since. Large areas for both bouldering and roped climbing which are regularly changed. Small cafe upstairs with yummy food made onsite. Definitely recommend and better than other similar places we have visited since.
