Undercover Rock was bought the The Climbing Academy in January 2016. We have a plan to invest in the centre over the coming years and we hope to bring UCR back up to a great standard.
UnderCover Rock is in a converted church. It's got them all - leading (overhanging, vertical and slab), traversing routes, bouldering, and a dedicated top rope area.
UCR has a cafe serving sandwiches, paninis, top quality coffee, flapjacks and other refreshments. For viewing and relaxing there is an interesting viewing gallery upstairs which looks over the entire main leading area.
The bouldering area has a full range of wall angles including a 45 degree wall and a slab. There is a dedicated circuit wall upstairs with a range of both easy, hard and children circuits. The route walls are 12m high in the lead area, 9m in the top-rope courtyard, but very good quality setting and design, and routes changed weekly if not daily.
UCR offers a full range of courses -
Step-Up to Leading
Technique and Movement Lessons
Private Tutoring and Groups
Youth Clubs and Performance Squad
Lead walls up to 12m. Lead/toprope walls to 9m including a separate beginners' area, all own-built with Livingstone input initially - built 1992, further developed in 1993 and 1995 and 2013. 1200 sq metres of wall surface. Cafe, meeting room. Courses and equipment available.
