You'll find loads of new bouldering problems throughout the centre, set as part of our ongoing Winter Bouldering Aggregate and over 100 routes including some brilliant new additions up to F8b set during the Welsh Climbing Championships at Beacon last month.
If you've never climbed before, why not use your free time over Christmas to have a go? No previous experience is necessary to get started, all ages are welcome and indoor climbing can be experienced on your own or with friends and family. It's the perfect antidote to boring gym regimes for adults and a great way to prove to kids that exercise is actually very exciting! Check out the schedules below and get involved!
|The World's first CrazyClimb!|
You may have tried climbing before, but not like this! It's fun, it's weird, it's wacky, it's totally CRAZY! Tackle a wall covered with large purple blobs, try shimmying up a drain pipe, climb aliens by grabbing their nostrils… we've got 11 different challenges to attempt and each one offers a completely different and completely crazy experience! Come and have a go and see if you can complete them all!
During School Holidays: Every day 10:30am, 12:00, 1:30pm, 3:00pm and 4:30pm
These 1 hour sessions are fully supervised and include a safety briefing prior to the start of the climbing session.

|Indoor Climbing Rocks!|
Never climbed before except up stairs or trees? Beacon has climbing suitable for all ages with hundreds of different colour coded climbs from really easy to really hard. The aim is to climb up using only the designated coloured holds - like join the dots but way more fun! Choosing the correct sequence of coloured holds and reaching the top provides an unbeatable feeling!

|Kids' Climbing Area (under 6s)|
Suitable for all children under the age of 6, our low level Kids' Climbing Area offers a variety of exciting climbing challenges surrounded by impact absorbing rubber crumb playground matting and is a really fun way for younger climbers to get involved. Climb up, down and around Tommy the Elephant, climb up and along the colourful low-level traverse wall or hide out in the play house! No specialist equipment or training is necessary although parental (or an appropriate adult) supervision is required.
When: The Kids' Climbing Area is open all day during climbing centre opening hours.
