Why groups love it here


Our young people had a brilliant time. Most of them have not been bouldering before and really enjoyed it! The three instructors who led the session were excellent and made everyone feel at ease and ensured everyone had a good time whilst remaining safe at all times..

Just wanted to drop a quick note to thank everyone last night. It went really well and I’ve had some great feedback. The guys running it were really amazing with the kids and got them really involved in the climbing and the experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to other groups.
