Rock climbing is a physical, challenging activity, which can be done outdoors or at an indoor wall. Indoors, climbers follow a series of marked holds or routes, which are set at varying difficulties. Not keen on heights or want to start without the ropes? Bouldering allows climbers to develop their skills on lower walls with crash mats, just a few metres off the ground, without having to use ropes.
The climbing centre at Brookes is the premier in the county making it the hub for the local climbing community. Membership of the Brookes Climbing Club provides entry and instruction during club sessions. In addition to weekly indoor climbing sessions the club also offers trips to undertake a range of climbing and mountaineering activities.
The wall is open 7 days a week and with regular beginners climbing courses and our Brookes Active 'get into...' sessions there are plenty of opportunities to start climbing.
