The Cragg offers bouldering, top-roping and lead climbing with all routes and problems clearly marked.

The dedicated bouldering room features a large range of wall angles to give variety to climbers of all abilities. There are approximately 70-80 bouldering problems at any time, grades typically range from VB - V8+

The leading and top roping walls comprise of over 30 rope lines, and are upto 8.5 meters in height, with slabs, vertical, and overhanging sections. Other features include a jamming crack and belay ledge, grades typically range from French 3 to 8a.

With regular route setting by our in house team, and some of the country's top setters there is always something new to challenge everyone!

There are some lines with top ropes in place, and all but three lines have in situ quickdraws.

I like this place. It has a great little bouldering room where the routes are changed on a regular basis. The climbing walls are bottom roped in places with others that you can lead. The place is slightly sandbagged but not so much that you would come away feeling disillusioned! Friendly and helpful staff and a nice crowd of regulars. Well done Stowmarket. Keep up the good work.

very friendly staff, route setting is constantly improving with varying styles and increasing difficulty in both the bouldering room and lead room, well worth a look
