Have been climbing at Rockstar for a while now - awesome facility with a nice little cafe and friendly staff. Recently booked into a learn to lead course with Mike and couldn't recommend it highly enough! Learnt so much over just 3 sessions and had a lot of fun too. Mike is a brilliant instructor - thanks for teaching us to lead climb!

Having spend many happy hour at Rockstar, I can't recommend it enough to people looking for a great physical challenge with all sorts of health benefits - with great staff and people who soon become friends. The new centre is fantastic and has opened up more opportunities to learn new skills.

They have now opened up an area for children, which is a relief as there is nothing worse than children running wild because parents just want to sit and drink tea. That said the 'most' children are super talented and have great parents wanting to join in.

Reading some of the reviews though, a limited number of parents think this is some sort of 'softplay'. Yes this is an activity that is for all of the family and fun, but at the same time, climbing is about mind, body & responsibility. Children can learn so much from this, but please, if you take your kids, make sure you are with them to ensure correct child management, at the end of the day, this is a potentially dangerous sport.

It is so refreshing to go to a climbing wall with a variety of different climbs and also gives the children a good chance of being able to climb the problem. Centre after centre set for adults and forget about the kids that are good at climbing. It was our first visit and it certainly won't be our last. Keep doing what you are doing 👍

Great climbing centre with a range of levels for all ages and abilities. Staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Really enjoyed my visits so far and have brought along my niece and nephew who loved it too so really a centre for everyone! Awesome for a fun afternoon or regular exercise.

Congratulations on the expansion to unit 5.. Very nice facilities. However, £9.50 for a child's entry fee for a 5 year old is too expensive. How is this encouraging young people into this sport? Shall be pursuing Far Peaks for climbing with my children in future.

Thank you so much for your review. We're very sorry to hear that you feel our prices are too high. We work very hard to offer the best value for money we can for our customers and whilst we understand that pricing varies across the industry our focus here is to offer the best climbing experience imaginable for both junior and adult climbers in a fanatstic state-of-the-art centre. We are also very proud of our junior and youth climbing programmes and invest a great deal in encouraging and supporting young people into the sport from all walks of life. It is something we're very passionate about and when compared to many other sports we're still one of the cheapest.

it was my first visit and I was extremely pleased with the whole experience

The route grading is consistently high, but I really enjoyed the routes I did, lured onto the steep / overhanging sections which were mostly out of my reach (currently) but mainly well set and a fun challenge
