“Everything you could want from a climbing centre”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

After going for the second time on 29/6/14 I would like to say that I really enjoyed myself. Good atmosphere and friendly staff who are on hand to help or answer any questions. I am new to the climbing community, but know enough to say that the place has varying difficulties for all climbers. Also has facilities for different climbing styles. Weekend deals, and also weekday I think, along with a loyalty scheme, keeping clients happy. I look forward to climbing here again and meeting more people. Would highly recommend. :)

“Great, but equipment seems a little bit naff.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

The walls here are great, with amazingly tall walls and some interesting routes up them. However I found that a lot of the holds tend to spin which makes you not trust the holds you can be jumping too, but oh well. I'd say my main issue was with my harness, it seemed not very well maintained and very old, as did a lot of the ropes (I only climbed top ropes, no lead climbing just yet!)

However the facilities are all clean and its easily accessible, it was a fun trip!

Hi Simon

Thanks for your kind response with regards to Awesome Walls Stockport.

I would just like to clarify that occasionally holds do spin but we do everything we possibly can to stop this and as soon as they are noted we tighten them as soon as possible. There are also numerous notices pointing this out to our customers.

With regards to the harnesses they are all logged and checked on a regular basis for health and safety reasons. You'd be surprised at how quickly a new harness can look old and tatty, the same goes with the ropes!

Please be assured that as one of the largest indoor climbing wall operators in the UK we are 100% safety first.

We're glad you had a fun trip and hope to see you back again in the near future soon.

All the best

“Indoor Climbing walls & Bouldering”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Rope Race was one of the UK's first Climbing centres (second after the foundry in Sheffield) and has contributed to a wide range of kids and adults learning to love climbing.

They cater from everyone from 5 years up - for birthday parties, casual climbers through to those who want tution. My son has been climbing there for a number of years - he started in the gecko kids classes - and has learned both skills and the mental problem solving side of climbing.

What he really enjoys is that they regularly change the bouldering routes and set bouldering competitions - so that it keeps climbers challenged.

And any review wouldn't be complete without mentioning the fantastic flapjack - a delight so fantastic that even if you don't climb you might want to drop in...

Rope race runs holiday clubs, and has archery and outdoor canoeing too.

“fun”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

this is a great place for adults and family to enjoy a different way to exercise. We have taken Nephews here who loved it, something different to do and a great way to get the kids hooked on climbing.
