Rock Over Climbing has been pushing forward climbing in Manchester and the North West for over 8 years, opening its doors in June 2010, right in the heart of Manchester. Since that time we have expanded at an exponential rate, culminating in over 700sqm of dedicated bouldering, and over 1000sqm of climbing surfaces! Add to this a gym, functional training areas, training board (including the Jim Pope board) and the UKs official GB Climbing team training wall, The Hub GB, it’s easy to see why it’s such a popular venue!
