About
Awesome Walls Stoke is one of England's largest dedicated bouldering centres. It comprises over 900 square metres of bouldering made up of walls and features of all angles to keep you happy every visit! There is climbing surface spread over two extensive floors including everything from slabs to the totally insane massive overhanging roof. In addition to this there is also an Awesome training area for you to target and develop specific pulling power. Most of the bouldering walls are 4.5 metres tall, but there are smaller walls especially designed for younger climbers. There is also a cafe with seating on both floors, where you can stop to refuel or just chill out and watch the action, a massive viewing gallery. As with all Awesome Walls Climbing Centres the problems are changed frequently so there is always a new challenge for you to get your teeth into.

I chose and continued using awesome walls because of the abilities of the instructors. Not only are they extremely capable when teaching climbing skills but can relate to young children when teaching at the child's individual pace but making it fun. An instructor called 'Dom' was also extremely capable when dealing with phone enquiries, selling refreshments etc, fast and efficient

We went with a friend a few weeks ago and absolutelynfell in love with the place.
Great place for all ages. Friendly staff and for £7.50 for the whole day (£10.50 with shoes) you really couldn't ask for more. We love the atmosphere and have seriously got the bug now. We've been nearly every weekend since!
I also can't recommend the toasties enough, they're incredible!

Went along with my son-in-law and our 3 1/2 year old granddaughter... but I couldn't keep my hands (and feet) off the walls... (mind, my aching bones, next day, suggested that my body can't quite keep up with my mind...)
Absolutely loved it....
When you aren't participating you can just wrap yourself around a nice cuppa and sarnie, while watching future Brown's, Haston's and Creamer's developing/ honing their skills.

Our granddaughter couldn't be stopped.... but she slept well that night.

As with any facility like this, common sense must prevail, (you don't want climbers falling on your head after all) but the super soft floors inspire confidence.

It was a climbing centre nothing more, nothing less. It had different walls to try based on difficulty. Anybody who likes climbing would enjoy it. Its suitable for any age really.

Having climbed as a lad I thought it would be good to let my girls have a try (5 and 9).

I called Awesome walls in Stoke and they were able to get us in for an induction that afternoon.

The staff are really friendly and helpful, there is a cafe and the bouldering walls are great.

As this is a bouldering centre, there are no ropes or harnesses, instead a padded floor which should help cushion any falls. You can still get a bit of height, certainly enough to make you sweat!

They hire climbing shoes.

If you go for a few hours it's great, an hour for the family could work out expensive though (you basically pay for the day).

Kids loved it, we've been back and hopefully will continue to visit.
