WELCOME

We are OPEN

and from Monday 19th July 2021 we move to Level 0, under Scottish regulations this does not mean Zero restrictions, our capacity is increased slightly.

Do experienced climbers & boulderers still need to book a session?

If you are travelling and are going to do either bouldering OR climbing but NOT both WE WOULD RECOMMEND BOOKING

During the summer months we do not generally reach our current allowed capacity – you can see from our new capacity meter how many are in the centre but this is not broken down to ropes or bouldering.

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?

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.
