The UK (and world's?) largest climbing wall. Set in a covered quarry, the walls are current state of the art, with five monster surfaces(up to 28 metres high) supplemented by freestanding boulders and a bouldering hall. Route setting is excellent.
Two huge new walls were added in 2009 to make this already large centre absolutely massive.
Can be very cold in winter. Roof is currently being repaired.
