Notes
Come and climb at Wales' leading dedicated Indoor Climbing & Training Centre!

We provide high-quality facilities for all ages & abilities - both experienced climbers and those looking to get involved in the sport. A fun and exciting activity suitable for all the family.

Now with over 17,000 ft2 of climbing surface, the centre boasts many unique features such as the only indoor natural limestone featured climbing walls in Wales - great for practising climbing outdoors.

There are also artificial featured climbing walls (up to 50ft from the ground!), large bouldering areas with plenty of interesting routes, as well as a challenging 60ft caving ladder, rope and tree climb for the more adventurous climber!

We've also recently added a large new climbing & bouldering area has been added; unique, outstanding and innovative features and climbs test even the most advanced climber - the first person to try out the new challenges was the world-renowned climber, Dave MacLeod.

New for 2016!

We have recently extended the climbing area into ‘The Cellar’ – a new, purpose built bouldering and training room. At the centre of the new area is a massive 70-degree training board!

Experienced climber?

Our climbing centre is a great place for competent climbers! We have plenty of challenging routes that will test your physical & mental ability, many with top-ropes in place. Most of our walls are also suitable for lead climbing (although you'll need to bring your own rope).

New to climbing?

We regularly run 1 hour 'Taster' sessions that will give you an introduction to climbing and teach you the basics in a safe and comfortable environment with experienced instructors. We also run children's climbing clubs for children aged 9yrs & over at our NICAS Awarding Centre.

Looking to improve?

Once you've got off the ground, improve your skills or learn to lead climb by booking one of our 2hr 'Improver' sessions. We can also provide advanced tuition for those wanting to learn even more. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

Some past experience?

Looking to get back into climbing but need a bit of a refresher? Our one or two hour 'Refresher' Sessions will quickly get you back on track.

Great little centre but I would ring first to check you are aloud to climb and don't need a lesson first as they won't make any effort to help you get started unless you pre book. Not happy with the lack of drive to get people climbing.

Went climbing here just after christmas and as a relative novice I found the centre to be friendly and have a nice atmosphere. The Pit was certainly fun although wet but that just adds to the challenge doesn't it?

Well... being a monkey... I know good climbing when I see it. It's my local...27 miles away but still my local and I feel I need to defend the place =oD Staff ARE helpful! just ask them for assistance.. they dont bite! well Ade might if ya ask nicely! But all in all they are a helpful bunch. These days the routes are changed fairly often. I'm a bouldering type and I love this place! At the mo you will find lots of nice lil 'up routes', a few travers routes, and of course the bouldering room which you can make no end of routes in!!! I mean we must have done 150+ routes since I started climbing there.. thats just in the bouldering room!!! 'Chestnut' being one of me faves. Come on over and ave a crack at it! A nice selection of easy stuff up to 'you aint ever gonna do that' type routes 'not for vegies' being one of them! Hats, shoes and indeed clothes off to Jonesy and Tank for doing that lil beauty! Seriously.. if ya can do that one I'll buy you a drink! It's not usually too busy and we are a friendly bunch (honestly!) So get on down there (tuesdays n fridays are good for us but we are avaliable for autographs on request) See ya there - Monkey -Team 'Smack!' Monkey, Dan, Sam, Jonesy, Tank- yes we are all fools and no this was not writen in any serious manner =o)

This center rocks, anyone who thinks climbing/training in damp conditions is a problem is clearly a stranger to climbing in britain, and if you ask the helpful staff they are always on hand to change routes and even help you lay down your own. Evenings are always quite with the cream of midwales climbers laying down the standard; monkey,dan,sam,jonesy

This centre is a decent alternative when you need a change of scene from Treharris. It is better suited for school groups and beginners, as most routes are short and without much interest. The pit is a nice feature, but again the damp is a bit annoying. Good small walls for the very young. I find it a bit hectic and usually bail out by noon. The gear shop is closed but has reconsolidated at Crickhowell Adventure in Brecon, which is excellent with informed and pleasant staff.

Llangorse is a very friendly centre, staff are always on hand to advise or sort out any problems you may have. The adult club is a great oportunity to meet up with other climbers in the area.

Well, this turned out to be my nearest climbing wall which is about 40 miles away. I am a beginner although have picked it up fairly quickly. Have to say that this centre offers value for money (1 life membership and 4 a throw for adults - which is for the day - 4 for a day of climbing - can they do that?!!) and some excellent facilities. Seems to be untapped as its normally very quiet with just a handful of climbers there. Open to 10pm as well which is unheard of in Mid-Wales (except Sundays - 6pm). Coffee is also excellent - hand made - none of the crap you would normally get from a machine!
Mike Davies - 10/Apr/02

Very good for both beginners and experienced climbers. There's a pit that has been especially dug from within the ground called "The Pit" which has natural rock and moulded hand holds for use. Abseiling facilities are availible. All sorts of other features are included. Well worth a look. The only down side to the centre is that it's a bit small. But you've got to try the hot chocolate.
