Held my son's 7th Birthday Party here yesterday and it was fantastic. The children, in two groups, did bouldering and lead rope climbing. Paul, one of the instructors was especially good, keeping the children engaged and safe while really encouraging them to try out the facility as none had done anything like it before. Everyone had a great time. Thanks... More

After one hour of the introduction lesson, my fiance and I did bouldering on our own for about 2 months. We ended up being stuck at the same level. So we decided to take the beginners courses. 'Mel' taught us some techniques and how to plan our route. She is really great at explaining things and she always suggested several... More

I'm new to Manchester so thought I'd find a new bouldering place to go to. I was sure I would like Rock Over Climbing based on the reviews but we did not enjoy it at all! The staff were very friendly but the whole place had a home made feel. The bouldering routes stopped half way up the wall in... More

I took our scouts to Rock over climbing tonight and everyone really enjoyed it. The price was right and the instructor helped the young people out, gave pointers and pushed the more able to better themselves. We went for an hour which was plenty of time as it is tiring if your not used to it. They all want to... More

Staff so helpful. great feel to the place. Two boys given so much guidance much needed and they enjoyed it so much. a very hard sport and good to see them challenged. They only did Bouldering not ropes. Highly recommend a visit to get the kids of all ages a good workout.
