What people think
Fantastic choice for a birthday party. Instructor brilliant with the boys. Party food ideal and no rush to clear the table. We shall certainly visit again.
Challenging and fun day climbing in the Wye Valley with Reading Climbing Centre. Good coaching, motivational, encouraging and confidence building. Friendly group and atmosphere with different grade climbs to suit all levels. I learnt a lot.
This was my first coaching clinic, a group of 6 of us of mixed ability, we got to practice new techniques and improve our positioning with feet, arms and hips. The instruction was clear and appropriate to each level of experience. We also picked up some good stretches and exercises for strengthening our shoulders and core.
The girls had a fun time and learnt to work together and challenge themselves. Instructors good. All equipment available for the girls. Good coffee shop and viewing area
Was initially brought here by a friend for a taster experience and returned for lessons. The instructors are very friendly and it's a great experience for both bouldering and harness climbing. Considering doing it regularly.
This place is wonderful for families. We have new expirence. Thank you for Sam, who showed everything for us.
My two daughters, ages 8 & 9, had an hour session with Dan. He was brilliant with them, helped them to relax, had fun but was also a great instructor really supporting them.
I organised a birthday party for my who was turning 7. All kids had great fun and even my eldest son who was thinking to get bored had great fun in climbing. The walls are suitable for basically all ages from 7 and up, so they all enjoy their time. The young lady instructor was very nice and took care of all kids letting them have fun all together. Catering was great, pizza was very good! All staff was very kind and helpful.
