Are you up for scaling Europe's most challenging indoor ice wall? Picture an 8m high wall which ranges in steepness from a pleasant slab to a drastic over-hang with everything in between, inside a refrigerated unit where the average temperature is -6°C. This is the closest you will get to ice climbing and with a variety of routes it will challenge novice and accomplished climbers alike.

On arrival at the venue you will meet your instructor, who will conduct a full safety briefing. Then it's time for you to get kitted up with all the safety gear before heading to the ice wall. Your climb will be under strict supervision of an instructor at all times. Tuition is on a one-to-one basis. Your experience will include 40 minutes ice climbing and a debrief.

Fantastic (albeit exhausting) experience

I got this as a birthday present from my girlfriend a while back, and eventually got round to using the voucher. I have been an avid rock climber for a while, but had never tried ice climbing before so I thought it would be a good thing to have a go at. The instructor was a great teacher and very friendly, it was just the two of us so we had a good chat while we climbed. The climbing itself was fun, very different to the rock climbing I am used to. Started off on some easier routes and eventually attempted to tackle some overhangs. By the end I was so tired I couldn't lift my arms, but it was absolutely worth it! Definitely recommend and fully intend to return myself.

✔ Yes. I recommend this product.

Great experience but staff were unwelcoming

I got this as a gift to try out with my boyfriend in June. The experience itself was great and would love to do it again. However, the male instructor was a bit stiff and quite unwelcoming towards my boyfriend which was a bit of a downer.
