Indoor climbing at CityROCK is a fun way of exercising in a safe and vibrant environment. Climbing is not about sitting on a treadmill for what feels like hours - each climb is different and will challenge you every time both physically and mentally. Our climbing facilities include a large bouldering area (bouldering is climbing 3-4m high without a rope) and high walls for roped climbing. We cater to many different audiences - from first-time kids to experienced outdoor climbers, and everyone in between. CityROCK is more than just a climbing gym, it is where like-minded people meet and share their passion for climbing. Our coffee shop area has a relaxed vibe and is the ideal place to meet friends, climbing partners and make plans for your next trip. Free Wi-Fi makes it a great spot to interact through your social media network, while having coffee, chatting, or browsing through climbing magazines and route guides. We also cater for children's birthday parties and corporate events. We have a well-established yoga studio that caters for a variety of yoga styles, and we also offer various climbing training courses for kids and adults alike. Our operating hours are: Mon/Wed 09:00-21:00, Tue/Thur 09:00-22:00, Fri 09:00-19:00, Sat/Sun 09:00-18:00, Pub Holidays 10:00-18:00 CityROCK is also the home of the finest specialist outdoor gear shop in the country. We stock a variety of top local and international brands and our friendly staff will be able to assist you in kitting up with the best gear for your next adventure. We pride ourselves on service excellence and our staff is always available to assist in any way. So why not give us a call or pop in and try it out, you are never too old or too young to try something new.

Our recent visit is our second time and second time disappointed. The staff are very rude from the get go. They make you feel very uncomfortable and make you understand you're not welcome. They are very unhelpful.More
