The wall is not very high and is not as good as the old wall in Keswick. It has really been designed for groups and all the routes are top roped. The bouldering area is ok but can be busy in the summer months. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is a good place to experience climbing for the first time, but not really for those who are looking to progress further.

My daughter aged 10 had a great 3 hour session climbing a slate crag as part of a group. They were taken to and from the climbing site by minibus and all equipment was provided. At the centre there was a large indoor climbing and bouldering facility. There is no cafe on site only vending machines but there are tables for picnics. My daughter cant wait to do it again!

I had a brilliant time at the Keswick Climbing wall where I'd booked a 1 hour private lesson, Heather was brilliant, she quite literally showed me the ropes and really made the whole experience really fun and safe. Recommended for kids and grown-ups Keswick climbing wall is a really great way to spend a rainy afternoon in the Lakes.

My 10 year old loves sports and now he can add indoor rock climbing to his portfolio. Dylon, our instructor, was fantastic. His training and encouragement really helped to make this a great experience. There are numerous walls of varying grades with so many ropes that there was plenty of space even with two organised groups. Everyone behaved impeccably and all the young kids were able to enjoy themselves very safely. They have a bouldering area where you can practise at low level without the need of a safety harness. Great fun. We spent all morning there and would have stayed all day if we had the choice. I thoroughly recommend Keswick Climbing Wall for all levels. We shall return.

Had a great time at the Keswick Climbing Wall. Have not been climbing since about 1978 when used to crag climb in Northumberland. Really enjoyed it then but wasn't sure I would still be able to climb. No need to worry, the tuition was excellent, and we both had fun climbing and belaying each other. Thanks to Emily for her clear instructions and encouragement.

Thank Keswicks-great
