Easy to access location in the centre of Manchester, lots of parking nearby. Andy was our guide, very knowledgeable about all things climbing, really made us feel safe. Comfortable, warm equipment available to hire, all looked in good condition. The climbing was difficult at first, but with Andy's guidance it became easier fairly quickly. Discounts for return visits, and we... More

Many moons ago I was ken rock climber and winter hillwalker, but had not ventured to vertical ice. Today was excellent, Caz is a really good instructor, and clearly knows the sport. The hour was long enough for some one at my age, I am sure my arms will ache tomorrow, but am really keen to undertake another visit. Really... More

We visited for a friends birthday. It was physically challenging but great fun. Our instructor was great and we managed to reach the top. Bit expensive but worth it as it's different.

What an amazing experience? My son had this in his bucket list so I had to let him try. All the kit was included and Nathan the instructor had a ton of patience and knowledge. An hour of great fun for my son and he was truly shattered afterwards. A huge Thankyou to Nathan, who was an amazing instructor and... More

I got bought an "Ice Climbing Experience" as a present and booked in a session at Vertical Chill Manchester. The wall itself is in the back of a climbing/arctic gear store, it's separated off by glass and the store serves as a viewing area which is a really cool idea. I had an hour session which included equipment hire, my... More

Received an hours tuition as a Christmas gift and was definitely one of my favourite presents. All the kit you need is provided and is good quality. My instructor , Caz, was really knowledgable and very patient. She made every effort to make sure I got the most out of the session whilst making sure I was comfortable with the... More

My 15-year-old son and myself had a hour's instruction with Alex. We're both pretty fit and found it fairly physically challenging. The -10C environment is also pretty severe, but this of course adds to the experience. Alex was absolutely great - very patient and encouraging. After some straightforward explanations on technique etc, we started off with the vertical climbs, then... More

Not easy but it is worth carrying on. I would have given up after my first try but the instructor told me where I was going wrong and gave such good guidance that I reached the top, which was amazing for me. My husband had booked this and he loved it. It was a great introduction to outdoor ice climbing.... More

Was a visit with friends. 4 of us (2 at a time) Jaz (I hope spelt right) was our instructor. Very pleasant greeting from entering shop. Jaz put us right at ease, very supportive and encouraging. We were soon shooting up the wall, trying out different skills. Had an amazing time. Not climbed on ice for over 25 years (showing... More

I booked an hour session at the wall to brush up on some techniques in preparation for the upcoming winter. The wall is perhaps a bit smaller than I'd expected - it's not particularly wide or high, and if you've used the ice climbing wall at the Ice Factor in Kinlochleven you might be a little disappointed. However, I found... More
