A great experience although quite small as its in the back of a climbing shop. Fairly challenging for a beginner but as fairly small would become limiting over time. Expensive experience 50.00 for 40 minutes. Discounts if you go back again. Staff experienced and knowlegable.

We'd never tried this before, and although we found it had going at times we really enjoyed giving this a go. I'd been worried about being too cold in the massive freezer, but even while I was waiting fro my turn I didn't get cold.
