Yes this is the best bouldering wall i have climbed on! Wall builders take note, add the wave and maybe the sloping cave at the wall in Artarmon in Sydney and you have the best inside bouldering in the world. Could do with cleaning though!

Worth every penny, as I discovered last week. A fantastic little venue, so much to go at. A sad ticker's paradise!

Brilliant. The best bouldering in Manchester. Scratch that. The best bouldering wall I've ever climbed on. Over 1000 marked up routes (most at 6a and above) to keep you going back for more.
