Notes
After 18 years based on the Ceunant hillside, Beacon Climbing Centre relocated in July 2012 to a huge new modern facility, conveniently located on the Cibyn Estate in Caernarfon on the main A4086 Llanberis road.

Featuring a large open plan design with numerous viewing balconies, Beacon Climbing Centre offers some of the best indoor climbing facilities in the UK and also includes the World’s first CrazyClimb installation - 12 wacky climbing challenges to attempt with each one offering a completely different and completely crazy experience!

For the regular climber, spectacular lead climbing walls extend up to 17m high with a maximum 7m overhang and there are numerous routes on gently overhanging and vertical walls offering more technical roped climbing. Routes are changed frequently and include all grades up to F8b.

The bouldering areas include a full overhanging arch and offer a huge array of climbing on a variety of angles from technical slabs to very steep. An 11m long and 5m wide bouldering ‘routing roof’ was added in 2013 and gives a forearm blasting upside down workout without the hassle of ropes and a harness. There is even a dedicated kids’ bouldering area to encourage even the youngest children to get involved, including the awesome Tommy the Elephant for added excitement.

Instructional courses are available for all ages and all abilities and everyone is welcome irrespective of whether they wish to use the climbing facilities - if you're visiting with friends or family but not climbing, or just fancy coming to have a look around, check out the cafe located upstairs within Beacon Climbing Centre. Offering a superb selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks and meals served throughout the day, the cafe also features a large balcony seating area with spectacular views overlooking the climbing walls and is equipped with free WiFi.
