The 40 top-roping lines provide much of the entertainment with the rope providing protection from above. For those climbers with more experience the 12 overhanging lead lines provide a greater challenge as they must clip the rope in as they go. Each line usually has three distinct colour coded routes to the top and these are changed every four months to provide continual interest. Climbing without a rope is available in the fully matted bouldering wall, where the wall varies from vertical to 45 degrees overhanging.

    I had my first climb here last week as a total beginner and did a course with a friend. It was perfect for my level since there are different grades to choose from. Great staff, nice friendly environment. I will be back very soon.
