Northern Rocks

During those holiday weeks where play time is every day, come into our facility to enjoy climbing for a few hours or all day! Bring your lunch, day passes last all day. One of our staff will give first time climbers an introduction to the facility, and you’ll receive a free week of climbing after your first paid visit. A great way to get the most out of your visit is to book a coach for an hour, who will go through the basics and meet you where you’re at with specific climbing technique advice, movement and bouldering skills.
