"Kendal Wall has to be one of my all time favourite climbing centres. The sheer size of it allows for any climber no matter what level to enjoy themselves, there's now epic amounts of bouldering thanks to the new build just completed and they have some crazy high walls up to 24.5m!"

VIDEO: Size Does Matter
Here at Kendal Wall we pride ourselves on providing a variety of indoor climbing with all angles of climbing on our huge lead walls (and some short ones) and the new Marmot Loft Bouldering Area. The key to our operation is ensuring we have a high turnover of routes and and problems from national and local setters. With specific low reach climbing problems and routes we ensure that although our walls are tall, height should never be an issue.

We hope to see you soon.
