Climbing Wall

Please note our climbing wall is currently closed

Measuring 8 metres high the wall has 23 rope points, an overhanging lead wall and 1725 climbing holds. Characterised by slabs of various angles, full size belay ledge, layback and jamming crack, stepped roofs, overhanging arêtes and varying degrees of overhanging walls – there is plenty to keep climbers content.  With 3D climbing features and a host of rope and belay points the wall has 64 set routes and 24 boulder problems.

The wall is primarily used as a coaching and instructional facility focusing on delivering the coaching of movement skills in bouldering and wall climbing for Glenmore Lodge students, which differs to the offering of a commercial climbing wall. Lead and boulder routes have been set with a coaching ethos in mind.

All harnesses, helmets, belay plates, lead climbing ropes and rock shoes are not supplied by Glenmore Lodge (bottom ropes are in place) and must be brought independently. A basic level of competency is required and all users must ensure they can confidently belay. All climbing and bouldering at the wall is unsupervised, unless the user is on an instructed session or supervised by a responsible adult. Membership is not currently available but a pay as you go system has been set up:

£6 – up to 2 hours

£4.50 – up to 2 hours

Under 18’s (permitted with the consent of an adult)
£4.50 – up to 2 hours

Permitting up to ten climbers at one time the wall will be open daily to the public from 9 am – 5 pm and 7 pm – 10 pm. 

Those wishing to use the facility must call reception on 01479 861 256 in advance of arrival to confirm availability and book a session. Please aim to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to booked session to allow the completion of Registration Form and to check in and complete a sign in sheet.
