GLL-run wall. Setting currently done by Eden Valley Mountaineering Club but not much new this winter. Maybe 30+ lead lines, two autobelays which are useful - no top-ropes left up so remember to bring your own!
Have found just lately that the top karabiner is often seized up. Mentioned it to the staff to no avail.
They Have Now Upgraded The Climbing Wall! (NOV 2007)
Removing the Bouldering area (see end note)
Featuring Many more Lead Climbing Opertunities, lots of new routes, clean holds (well for now so be quick!) and routes of all abilities and styles
Perhaps slightly easy on the grades- but maybe its just that they're short routes!>?

i climb there loads and i think its a pretty good wall for penrith and theres rumours going round that they might be extending it so that should be good. the routes arent changed every 6 months though, the routes were changed the other week but they had been up for just one month short of a year.
Very neat little wall. A bit smaller than I had first imagined but that didn't really matter as I was the only one in there. There is no staff supervision which I think is a bit of a bad practice so make sure you know what you're doing! All walls appeared to be lead walls because there was no rope already up when I went. I was on my own so I was just bouldering. Nice big fitted mats with some very nice routes. A little disapointed that there were very little set routes and no grading, but what can you excpect on a moulded wall? All in all I'd give it a 7/10.
Not a bad little wall. The leisure centre has recently had a refit but the wall wasn't part of that. When I went there were quite a few spinners so watch your step!
My friend climbs at the climbing wall every Tuesday she says it is great! Soon i will be going to the climbing wall with her! I am looking forward to it! It looks better than the one at our school! (Can't wait)
i climb at penrith once a week i am a beginner some of the walls a nice and easy others a more difficult
Penrith is nice and small. i climb five days a week there. 9m high so not so many clips required. boldering wall is cool big mats so nice soft landing. great place. much nicer than keswick.
i climb here like every day for my lunch break and their arn't 2 bouldering walls its all the same one but not bad for a small wall.
And theirs 18 leading walls with various routes on each ranging from 3 to 8A+ so even more for every one
I climb their soooo often and i have been to better walls but i like our little wall and if u ever get board i have like over 25 problems on the bouldering wall and help set routes soo know it like the back of my hand
sad i no
