We love climbing! In recent years, we’ve seen rock climbing absolutely boom with popularity. We’re not at all surprised, after all it is a superb way to stay in shape and truly push yourself further then you ever thought possible. For years now, we have been partnered up with some of the South-West’s premier climbing venues. We really enjoy working together to help support everyone getting into climbing because we know just how rewarding taking up this amazing sport can be. Take a look below at our partners, take a look at their websites and plan your visit!

The Quay Climbing Centre in Exeter

We’ve been in a close partnership with the Quay since its birth in 2011. Built within Exeter’s former electricity works along Exeter’s historic quayside, this great centre is the South West’s largest indoor climbing wall. The walls within are perfect for climbers of all ages, abilities, and experiences. There are well over 200 routes to try at any time. There’s a 14.5 metre lead wall, top-roped walls from 7 to 11 metres, 7 auto belays for solo climbers and a dedicated novice zone as well as two boulder caves and training room. The Workshop Café offers a daily menu of home-cooked food prepared on-site by Chef Paul, including his famous pizzas, as well as cakes, coffees and Panini’s for you to enjoy after your climb.

We have sponsored many of the quay’s climbing competitions and events, including the summer and winter boulder league series and DWS competitions. We have also facilitated some very popular guest speaker evenings including the Sherpa Master Class and an evening talk from Neil Gresham in early 2014.

In a mark of our close partnership, all Quay members receive 15% off in all of our stores when presenting their membership card, we hold one of the best ranges of climbing gear in the country and are here to advise and help you choose the best equipment for your needs.

The Quay is open 7 days a week, members all receive 15% discount on purchases in our Exeter store.

Redpoint and Flashpoint in Bristol

We are very pleased to be in partnership with Bristol's premier climbing and bouldering facilities, Redpoint and Flashpoint. Converted out of an old art-deco cinema, Redpoint has become an innovative hub for climbers and fitness enthusiasts across the South-West, with over 100 top roped and lead courses up to 14 metres high. They also have 5 designated boulder areas, a dedicated training space and a fully licensed café and bar, serving a full menu and excellent local beers. Flashpoint bouldering centre opened its doors in late 2019. Located a short walk from Temple Meads, getting to Flashpoint Bristol is easy. Designed with climbers of all abilities in mind; from new climbers to those looking for incredible training facilities. For those new to bouldering in Bristol, they run regular Taster sessions where one of their excellent instructors will get you going and even teach you a few key techniques. The routes are changed all the time which means there is always something fresh to try, even for the most dedicated of climbers.
