Not sure why the dislikes....unless you are putting a harness on the lad and hoisting him skywards.....

The seating area next to the cafe in the Kong Climbing Centre in Keswick I think was dog friendly.....the Ice Wall was not!!!

I guess depending whether you are allergic to dogs or not, its either a dog friendly centre or a climbing no go centre

Saw a dog in the main climbing area at Kong last year. It didn't have a clue though!

Maybe a boulderer who wandered into the main wall in error. Mind, the dogs are good at sit starts

Notts has a water bowl down for k9 guests. There's dogs that go loose but stay round the cafe, dogs that have their beds with them - you name it! I've never seen them in the climbing areas though - just the spectator bit outside the cafe.

The Red Goat York has (/had it's been a while since I was there) a dog. It is only interested in you if you have food.

I'm sure they are happy for dogs to go in to the cafe area.

Big Rock used to allow dogs, and they recently banned them, for precisely that reason, in the end climbers take priority over pets.

I think it's a shame as I quite liked having them there (I like dogs) but I do respect their reasoning, in the end dogs don't make a profit and can be left at home.

This is great. I didn't know you could take the dog or had even thought about bringing her to the wall! Thanks for sharing.
