Ice climbing is much cooler than rock climbing, even if only in terms of temperature! Any type of climbing is seriously good fun, but with ice climbing there is a stronger sense of man vs the elements - you face a frozen vertical challenge that can't be rivalled!

Ice Climbing is as good for body as for mind, helping you to keep fit whilst losing yourself for a while in quiet focus as you scale the the frozen wall. The ice wall is beautiful and just a little daunting, and while the physical challenge is certainly something to keep in mind, it is the need for a calm and focused approach that can present the biggest challenge - and, consequently, the greatest reward. It is just you and the wall, and the minutes will slip away as you find your route to the summit.

With picks and axes in hand, you'll chip away at the freezing cold ice and step your way to the top of a challenging and tricky wall that has been made using over 100 tonnes of snow, creating a surface around 300 square metres for your scaling pleasure.

Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre your day will begin with a thorough safety briefing covering all aspects of the wall. Then it is time to get kitted out in all of the necessary gear - all equipment is provided - and to head to the wall! You will be under the strict supervision of your instructor who will provide professional one-to-one advice.

Age Restrictions: Min age is 14. ( Must be at least size 4 shoe size)
If you are over 50 please contact us to avoid disappointment.
The Ice Climbing experience will last for around 1.5hours. This includes the safety briefing, kitting out, basic training and the time on the wall. You will get at least 40 minutes on the ice wall. You should aim to arrive ten minutes before your allotted time.
Your tuition is on a one-to-one basis, however there will be a max of 5 other climbers on the ice wall during your session.
Usually available throughout the year, except for the Christmas and New Year Period.
