With over 200 graded routes and a real rock section sculpted to mimic climbing on Limestone Grit and Slate, this centre is a fine addition to Craggy in Guildford and offers a superb days climbing. Routes are changed regularly with no route being up for more than 2 months.
The centre runs a range of instructed sessions, introduction to bouldering, coaching from well known climbers Mark Croxall, Gaz Parry and Lucy Creamer, birthday parties for kids and adults for both bouldering and caving.
Craggy membership covers both centres which are approx 40mins drive apart with many making good use of both.
The S4 bus route (Rose Hill, Sutton, Belmont, Carshalton, Roundshaw) briefly runs along Woodmansterne Road close to the centre. Download the South East London area bus map from here for details.
