Our Walls

Bouldering- The Shallow End

Located in the Main Hall, in what used to be the Shallow End of the Noel Street Swimming Baths, is an extensive bouldering zone with climbs of all standards on slabs, walls and a variety of overhangs. Recently rematted in a tasteful bright orange (!), this is a great area to get your bouldering motoring!

Bouldering- Stanage Edge

Located at the back of the Shallow End is a long corridor of bouldering, facing which is a long portrait of Stanage Edge painted by our Artist In residence, Rachel. When you’re too pumped to climb, count the rabbits!

Bouldering- Kids

This area, at the opposite end of the Centre from the Shallow End, is known as the DeepEnd. Behind the Headwall is a kids’ traversing area. Remember- children must be supervised at all times!

Bouldering- The Green Room

The Green Room is not where actors rest before going on stage; it’s the bouldering area with green matting. Made in Poland by DR Climbing Walls, it features slabs, walls and angles beautifully proportioned to give a variety of exotic problems at all grades.

The Training Room

The Training Room is off the Green Room Bouldering. It features overhanging finger cracks and small crimps- just the stuff to get you up to the best you can be!

The Training Room

The Tower

The Tower is in the centre of the Main Hall, and features slabs, walls and overhangs. Some of its surfaces have been designed to replicate gritstone crags, with awkwardly shaped cracks for hand- and foot-jamming. The Tower offers both top-roping and lead climbing.

The High Walls

These walls are vertical, with Volumes to create interest. They provide both top-roped and lead climbing.

The High Walls

The Headwall

This is where you strut your stuff when you’ve got it all together! This is the looooong leading wall, steeply overhanging in the centre, where all that stamina training pays off. It’s a bit like Yosemite, except you can pop into the cafe for a latte when you’ve done a couple of routes…

The Group Room

This is where many people new to climbing take their first steps. There are plenty of straightforward routes to enable you to learn the ropes, and prepare you for more challenging climbs after you’ve mastered the basics. Oh! And the kids love it in here.
