Not good for keen young climbers - restrictive rules, limited routes and outdated bouldering area
Oct 2019
The routes at Dynamic Rock are generally good but limited in number and so need to be re-set regularly to maintain interest. The bouldering area is very limited and now seems quite dated. The biggest problem for us is that unlike the majority of climbing walls we have visited is that their rules do not allow 13 year olds to belay - no matter what their size, abilities or experience. This is very frustrating as my son has extensive experience on multi-pitch trad climbs as well as belaying at other walls - and even did NICAS belay training at Dynamic Rock. The consequence is that we won't be visiting again until the policy is changed - not least as The Hangar is now a much better bouldering offer in Swansea and the Summit Centre near Merthyr has a far wider and more interesting range of routes. It was no surprise that when we called at Dynamic Rock today (and then left to go to the Hangar after being told that my son would not be able to belay) there was only one car in the car park whilst The Hangar was full

Indoor climbing experience
Aug 2019 • Family
The place is fit for purpose. Has friendly and knowledgeable and helpful staff.
The kids enjoyed their stay. It wasn’t crowded which is good as it isn’t too big. The parent supervised bouldering is a good session for the kids to try whether this is for them. It is reasonably priced even the shoes rental.

Helping our team reach new heights
Jan 2019 • Business
For one of our team building days, we decided that dangling them off a 6m wall would somehow create a stronger bond between the team. We were welcomed upon arrival and taken downstairs to get warmed up. Sam, our instructor, put us through our paces with some fun games which really showed us how unfit we were. We were then brought over to our first climb and given detailed instruction and guidance putting some of our more nervous members of the team, at ease. It was then time to climb. We started of on some of the easier climbs before progressing through the venue onto some of the more difficult climbs. Throughout the whole experience, Sam was with us, guiding, assisting and motivating the team. Everyone was treated with respect and no matter the ability, it was impressed on them how well they had done. We then, even though thoroughly exhausted after the two hour session, found the strength to finish off the evening with a few games of dodgeball. Overall, this was an excellent way of building our teams mindset and we are still talking about the day, 5 days after we climbed. I cannot praise this venue and the team enough and we are already looking forward to going back.

Superb
Aug 2017 • Family
Took the kids and a couple of their friends for a taster session which was absolutely brilliant. John was a great instructor and kept the kids enthused, encouraged and made sure they had a fantastic time.

Would recommend dynamic rock and the staff there for a great hour / couple of hours.

Great facilities, brilliant staff
Sep 2016 • Friends
Such a great place! The staff were very friendly and helpful and took us around all the different levels of difficulty, which I really appreciated as a newcomer. The facilities were great, the cost was reasonable, and there's a lovely cafe area at the top of the climbing area which we spent some time at afterwards to relax. The building isn't much to look at from outside, but the inside is fully kitted out, and has a lovely view of the nearby river. There is also ample parking for visitors. Highly recommended!

awesome
May 2017 • Friends
very nice climbing center with a small but challenging bouldering corner. We recently undertook a small climbing course by the Gower so we can start climbing outdoors. The weather turned out to be great despite the small showers in the morning! They will teach you everything there is to know (well, within reason!) about being safe when climbing. The instructor would go through all the issues that could go wrong and then he would help you troubleshoot them one by one. At the end of the day you are prepared to deal with most issues that you might encounter while outside.

I really recommend the course once you have the opportunity!

Well done!

Great fun for any age - friendly atmosphere - brilliant staff
Nov 2016 • Solo
First came to dynamic Rock as I had started to develop a fear of heights - had a taster session and never expected to enjoy it so much!! All the staff are so friendly, patient and encouraging no matter what level you are - the atmosphere is relaxed and very friendly and someone will always chat and offer friendly advice - I really look forward to going - a complete De stress as you can't think about anything else and always so much to learn - the new bouldering room is brilliant - Give it a go it's addictive 😁

Great centre with great staff
Jul 2016 • Couples
We did Dynamic Rock's Introduction Course a month or so ago and have been back 2 or 3 times a week ever since. The staff are all very friendly and approachable and make the effort to ask how how the climbing is going. We have just done an outdoor climbing experience day which we both thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were very knowledgeable and professional which enabled us to completely enjoy our first outdoor climbing experience.
We will definitely continue to use the centre and look forward to booking onto more courses in the future.

"An exiting experience at..."
Apr 2016 • Solo
April is a pretty busy month right? But I thought it was just a normal church although it had a weird sign on it the place was called Dynamic Rock! It was a new experience for me it was a rock climbing centre it's probably a new experience for everyone! If you want you will see a lot of rock climbing walls. Surprisingly, you would think why would you build a rock climbing centre in a church? But it's the best most exiting place because you can just climb. There are two areas, there is the bouldering room where you don't have any harness but you have these special shoes not your normal shoes! And then there is the big walls where you definetly need a harness but the instructors are nice helpful when you feel scared they help you relax and they always put your safety first (luckily) This place reminds me of LC2 because they have a rock climbing area but it's not as good as Dynamic Rock!!! It is a lit expensive but for a hour and a half its £10 if you want to become a member it's pretty expensive it's £300 (WOW)

Hello, thank-you so much for your brilliant review! We love the building just as much as you do, like you say what a brilliant surprise when you get in here! The yearly membership is aimed at climbers who use the climbing centre on a regular basis as you can image climbing 2-3 times a week the cost builds up, this is why we offer yearly and monthly memberships so that people can save money and use the centre as much as they please! We hope that you visit us again soon! The Dynamic Rock Team.
