Our Big Plans - Improving our climbing facilities even further

The Lakeland Climbing Centre is currently undertaking a massive re-development to extend and enhance our facilities. Phase Two of the development is now complete and the Climbing Centre extends over 5 levels offering a range of climbing and bouldering areas and activities to suit everyone. We have added a dedicated training room, a family-friendly room for beginners to intermediate climbers (The Den), an enormous new bouldering room (The Marmot Loft), Creamery Cafe, new reception area with a well stocked climbing shop and two conference/meeting rooms as well increasing the number of leading lines to over 60 and extending our main wall to a height of 25m making us the tallest indoor climbing wall in the country.  All our developments have enabled us to extend the scope of our services which now include yoga classes, catered birthday parties, conference facilities and social functions.  We intend to extend our facilities further in 2014 to include Crazy Climb and a via ferrata.
