WELCOME

We are OPEN

and from Monday 9th August 2021 we move ‘Beyond Level 0’, under Scottish regulations this does not mean Zero restrictions;

  • We have removed the booking option for experienced climbers and boulderers
  • MASKS are still obligatory whilst you are NOT climbing, so please remember your’s
  • ‘Give People Space’ is the new mantra, which makes total sense for climbing so lets do this
  • Ventilation, we will be maintaining our enhanced ventilation
  • If you’d like to avoid busier times you can phone us to get an update or we suggest avoiding Tue, Wed, Thu evenings

ALL Novice rope climbers / Groups Do need to book.

Novice boulderers DO NOT need to book though there are some limitations

(subject to changes in Scottish government conditions)

We are Tayside’s only dedicated indoor climbing centre. Located in the centre of Dundee near the universities and easily accessed by all methods of transport.

We are open seven days a week and offer climbing facilities (bouldering, top roping, leading) for all ability levels. Our experienced and friendly staff are always happy to help and can run courses to suit all ages (from 7 years upwards).

WHAT’S INDOOR CLIMBING ALL ABOUT?

You make have seen the climbing at the Tokyo Olympics and be keen to give it a try.

All those Olympians will have started off at a centre similar to Avertical World and we have UK & Scottish team members regularly using the centre for their training as well as novice sessions running most days, see you soon!

Indoor climbing is great exercise, builds stamina, strength and skills, it’s exciting as well!

We have two main forms of indoor climbing these are:

BOULDERING: Low level climbing above crash mats, without ropes, exciting, easily accessible and suitable for beginners through to experts, young and old, We have hundreds of ‘problems’ to test yourself against! There are lots of challenges.

ROPED CLIMBING: Our higher walls stretch from just 5 metres high to over 10 metres in length. There are three forms of roped climbing:

  • Top Roping which involves a climber (you!) and a belayer.
  • Auto Belays which use a bit of mechanical ‘magic’ to automatically lower you down from the climb for your next try.
  • Lead Climbing is a more advanced form of rope work where the climber clips their rope as they climb, this is one of the techniques used outdoors.
