I done the rockstart sessions on Tuesdays in January and had the help of staff to pass my safety test. I now go every week (often more than once) and cannot fault the staff and other climbers for their friendliness and support.

a really nice wall, a little small for my taste as it got crowded really easily, but the routes were well graded and well maintained. The cafe was nicely stocked with the usual cakes and tea with some chis and fried goods on offer too.

Excellent facility, friendly and helpful staff. The climbing wall here is slightly shorter than at Harlow (next local wall), but at 10m with some tricky overhangs and a variety of graded routes there is plenty here to while away the hours. Definitely recommend!

We went to the climbing centre around 4pm on Saturday and it was nice and quiet as all the kids seem to use it in The morning and afternoon which was great for us. You have to take a safety test and then you could supervise 2 other people which is great if you want to take people that babe... More

I took myself (a lumbering 37 year old guy) and my four kids aged 8-14 here for an hour's taster session. The staff member that took care of us (Danny) was brilliant, and had a natural charm and teaching style which put us all at ease and made the day more enjoyable. We got to try each of the walls,...

We've been visiting Basildon High Sports for just under a year now - prior to this we'd never climbed at all. Everyone here - the staff and the climbers are extremely helpful and friendly; there's no clique, everyone is always offering help, advice and encouragement; the routes are a nice mixed bag that change frequently enough to offer new challenges...

We have been bring our 6 year old son for about 6 months. In that time we have seen him grow from a timid child to a confident climber who is not afraid to have a go at anything.

My daughter had a birthday party here in Feb 2012 and since then I have arranged several group visits for home educated children. The group visits have been with children of mixed ages (4-16) and abilities. The staff have done a brilliant job of catering for all of the children, and the children have loved the sessions. Mia, the manager,... More
