alien bloc

alien bloc is our dedicated bouldering centre and was built in two stages. The first area being built and opening in 2017 with an extension to the wall being built and completed in 2018.

Indoor bouldering is suitable for almost all ages and abilities from the complete novice to experienced climber, whether you visit individually or as part of a group of friends.

With firm matting throughout and the wall not exceeding 4.7 metres in height, ropes are not required, making it that bit easier to get into the fun of climbing without the need to get into the more technical aspects of roped climbing.
