Sheffield - rock climbing capital of England. As one climbing wall closes, a new one opens. Awesome Walls Sheffield is almost a year old now and has settled into a regular venue for local climbers. With routes ranging from grade 4 top ropes to a number of +7 lead routes, there's plenty for every skill level - including artificial rock, the Prow! Behind the main walls there is even a bouldering area and a number of lower rated toorope routes, if you're a bit intimidated by the 'serious guys' ( but don't be, we're pretty friendly.)

Outside there's plenty of off road car parking on two levels and inside there's a fairly limited cafe. Upstairs there's an open plan warm-up and viewing area, with a small function room for the little ones parties. Overall, this place take care of my indoor climbing needs, with well rated routes, friendly staff and a good atmosphere.

What's missing? A decent changing area with showers, would be useful. And a shop selling basics like chalk balls, finger tape, etc

Hi Saltyre

Thanks for your kind and detailed review.

A shower and changing room is now available. We are also selling the basics that you mention from behind the counter. A full blown shop is also on the cards!

Hope to see you again soon.

All the best

I have been climbing at various walls over the years and have to say that Awesome walls Sheffield beats them all. A great mix of routes in different settings, including a beginners wall. The bouldering walls are huge. The food in the cafe is simple but tasty and the staff are friendly. And then of course there are the freebies you can earn with multiple visits!

I've recently started taking two of my grandsons (age 8 and 11) to the kids club at Awesome walls once a week. It is their favourite activity and are progressing week by week.

I tend to take advantage of their lunchtime offer... Hot cuppa (decent latte!) and climb for £4. Not bad since you pay over £2 alone at some large chain coffee shops!
Variety of climbs from beginner to pro, makes this wall appealing. Friendly atmosphere, lots of free parking... Plus (of course!) *awesome* routes to flex those muscles on :)
