Been to Vertical Chill this morning for a couple of hours. Had great fun practicing my ice climbing skills. Many thanks to Will for his diligent belaying and keeping us both safe. Well worth a visit before doing it for real.

No but if you go to their other shop in Duke Street and ask in the shop if its ok to park then this should be fine. 10 minute walk to Vertical Chill at max.
