Climbing Wall and Abseil Tower

Looming above the Whitwell Leisure Park is our 8m high climbing wall and abseil tower. The experienced, novices and ‘social’ climbers will all find challenges on colour-graded routes for everyone. Our expert and knowledgeable instructors will supervise at all times and will be on hand to answer any questions. Come down the cool way, abseiling off James Bond style!

Younger climbers can climb at the RockBlok too – our traverse wall is perfect for building confidence without getting too high.
