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.
