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
