Why Choose Us?

We re-opened our Preston climbing centre opened in 2021, when we built a whole new lead wall, and renovated and improved the original roped walls. We added a bank of auto-belays, new bouldering areas, a training area, and a special space for kids. With us, you can learn from experienced experts, and have access to roped climbing, bouldering, auto-belays, a training area, kids climbing, adult-only classes and a gear shop.

Just minutes away from the M6, M55 and A59 and open year-round, we cater to everyone from beginners to pros.
