Recently got back into bouldering and started at another centre in bristol,. After attending bloc I decided to switch my membership as I feel there is a far greater opportunity to progress here and the centre is much cleaner than others around. Highly recommended to...More

The gym is relatively big and wasn't that busy on a working day evening but as soon as it gets a bit warmer outside it get's quite hot and there is no ventilation apart from doors being opened at the back of the room.

If you want to see how not to run a climbing gym, come here. 1) The male toilets were filthy. The hand drier looks like it's never been cleaned. 2) The holds are dirty, greasy and have been up for what looks like months. 3)...More

An excellent climbing facility with an atmosphere of the same standard. I'm in bristol travelling by and would recommend for a day of climbing as something to shakeup the pattern. The climbing routes are great for beginners to experts. I felt there was a good...More
