The Climbing Walls
Designed and constructed by Rockworks, a North East company with over 30 years experience in the industry, the climbing walls at the Newcastle Climbing Centre offer a fully comprehensive indoor climbing facility from bouldering and auto belay climbs to lead and top rope climbing.
The tallest climbing walls offer roped climbing walls to the full height of the building, fully equipped for top rope and lead climbing. This is the centre piece of the climbing centre with a wide variety of angles and features and a spectacular and challenging 8m roof section.
Intermediate and Instruction Zone
Lower height walls predominate in this area which is separate from the central zone and an ideal base for groups under instruction and for novices to gain experience.
The climbing walls in this area are highly varied and include a rock featured training wall.
Auto Belay Zone
A unique, simulated rock wall with 10 auto belay climbing lines. The climbs have the look and feel of a rock face and the auto belays allow you to climbing the walls without a partner to hold the rope. A popular area for everyone from novice to experienced climbers.
A dedicated bouldering wall for unroped climbing with safety matting throughout. The bouldering wall has a great range of angles and features from caves to slabs and overhanging walls. The colour graded climbing circuits provide endless technical challenges for all levels of ability.
We provide excellent facilities for all our visitors including changing rooms and showers, disabled access, meeting room for events and conferences and a spacious mezzanine chill out and viewing gallery. Our on site gear shop also offers specialist climbing equipment from all the leading brands and our experienced staff are always on hand to provide advice and assistance.
