We were given a detailed overview by one of the instructors who was very knowlegable which put my mind at ease as watching people climbing from the cafe area was making me nervous (Anyone whose watched the Cliffhanger movie will know what I...

Took a group of Brownies to Boulders this week as an end of term activity and it was fantastic. The instructors were great with the children, keeping them focused and paying attention - which is no easy feat.Even when the girls were a bit scared the team at Boulders were able to talk them through things and help them achieve...

Went on a taster sessions with work (Cardiff University) for its Positive Health and Environment Week, and I must admit it was incredible. I was worried before hand that I would be very nervous, and that I wouldn't feel comfortable since I've never climbed before. But the instructors were very nice and it was such a positive and relaxed atmosphere.... More

I booked onto an adult taster sessions which my friend and I attended yesterday (9th July) and have to say, it was fantastic fun! Upon arrival the staff were cheery and helpful, our instructor, whose name escapes me, was professional and good fun (for the first half hour she was accompanied by a little apprentice by the name of Harry)....

My hen was 5 years ago but it was great fun getting all my friends climbing. I have been to the centre on a few occasions with different people, usually doing taster classes or beginners climbs and I really enjoy it. The teachers there are great and there are lots of walls to have a go on.

The location is accessible. The staff are friendly (thanks Dan)! A group of us did the adult taster session, and we progressed hugely in just over an hour. Will definitely be going back - especially as they gave us vouchers :)

We booked on a taster session thinking it would be over 18s due to confusion on the website. When we got there we found out we were with a large group of under 10s for a gamut taster session. Not what we wanted really. We spoke to Rich, one of the managers there and he took us for a private... More

I first attended the introduction course a couple of months ago and had a great couple of hours! The group size was perfect and the staff were extremely friendly and good at pushing you just outside of your comfort zone. I went back again with my girlfriend and her family a couple of weeks later using the voucher from the... More

I had my daughter's ( Bo ) 9th Birthday party at Boulders on Saturday with 7 of her friends and it was excellent. Very well organised and took the stress out of having a party having made and set the table for the party lunch which had plenty of good quality food and choice - Highly recommended, lots of fun...
