DCC is a dedicated bouldering centre with facilities for beginner to very advanced climber. The climbing area is spread across two bouldering rooms and has a vibrant friendly vibe.<br /><br />There is a variety of angles, stepped roof overhangs, and the huge highball volcano structure housing 25º, 35º & 45º overhangs. All climbing surfaces are finished with an enhanced friction paint to make the experience as realistic as possible. A training area has a huge campus board as well as various fingerboards. Complimentary facilities include a warm up area, table tennis, changing rooms and stylish coffee lounge overlooking the junior wall. <br /><br />Problems are technical and interesting ranging from V1 - V9. The quality of holds and the route setting is important. Holds are regularly cleaned and changed every 4 - 8 weeks by some of the worlds top route setters including Ian Vickers, Jamie Cassidy, Jason Pickles and Ben Meeks.
