Hold on!
We only purchase climbing holds made in Europe – these have more stringent environmental standards and a smaller carbon footprint.

Routes

With over 450 routes in the centre and at least 80 changing each month, you won’t get bored at The Castle! Routes are set by our team of in-house setters led by Chief Setter Mike Langley and guest setters including Steve McClure and Gaz Parry.

We offer both top-roping (where the rope is already in place through anchors at the top of the wall) and lead climbing (where you must clip the rope in through running belays as you climb). In order to lead climb you will need to bring your own rope. If you know how to top-rope and would like to learn how to lead climb, you can book a Learn to Lead course with us.

All our routes are graded using the French grading system and are easily identifiable on each wall.  We have a range of routes at all times from grade 4 up to 8a.

We regularly host a number of national and regional competitions including the BMC’s Youth Climbing Series and the BMC’s Leading Ladder. See our events blog or sign up for updates to get the latest news.

The Castle also has a TruBlue Autobelay system (currently residing on line 55 on the Rockley Wall). The TruBlue autobelay system may only be used by registered climbers.


Has your climbing partner let you down? Are you looking for new people to climb routes with?

Join The Session  which runs every weekday evening from 7 to 9.30 pm and weekends from 3 to 6pm.
