Highball is East Anglia's largest and only dedicated indoor climbing centre. Housed in a 10000 ft2 space, we have extensive indoor bouldering and climbing walls with something for all ages and abilities. The bouldering walls have up to 10 circuits, with over 200 boulder problems which are reset every 8 weeks. The indoor climbing walls (top rope / lead climb) have 16 lines with over 40 routes top choose from, plus 6 Auto Belays too. We're also very proud of The DMM Competition Wall, one of the biggest Comp Walls in the UK. It's normally reset every month for our regular comp nights and it also hosts local and national bouldering competitions throughout the year, including The Big Flash: An annual climbing festival and national climbing competition. OTHER FEATURES: Training area with campus board, 40 degree 'Beast Maker Board' Strength and Conditioning area 16 Lead and Top Rope Lines 6 Auto Belays Adult Courses and Coaching Junior Courses and Coaching Family Climbing Sessions Taster Sessions Schools Cubs & Scouts Corporate Groups #GetClimbing *** Climbing Shop *** Excellent Cafe - all food and cakes are homemade on site!

We booked for a hour long private induction with neither of us having climbed before. The instructor was lovely and friendly, and made us feel at ease despite being nervous! We got to do climbing and bouldering in the hour, definitely good value for money.
