Booked my 7 year old son (Daniel) onto the "Rock Its" course. A great hour and a half climbing and lucky to get one to one tuition with Rich - who was great and gave him good encouragement and advice. Daniel loved it too. Thanks guys.

Great climbing wall with a variety of routes and two auto belay devices. Offers a great range of courses for both adults and kids. Good shop selling quality climbing gear. All the staff are friendly and helpful and on hand to offer advice.

The good thing about the centre is that there is a little bit of everything- top ropes, lead, bouldering, autos and a training facility. It is however extremely over priced especially for a one-off user that does not wish to sign up as a member (I do not understand why there is a fee for signing up as a member).... More

Completed the 'Learn to Lead' course at Harrogate Climbing Centre and loved it. Rich and Freddie were excellent. Both were patient, knowledgeable and taught us over the three sessions with great enthusiasm. A great course with fab instructors. Many thanks . AAA. Would highly recommend.

My oldest loves climbing so booked him in for a 1:1 taster session and he loved it. The instructor was great, friendly with him and teaching him about the safety basics and climbing techniques. We'll be back to do the climbing lessons. Good facility.
