I had a great day. The staff are lovely and welcoming... I felt very comfortable the moment I walked through the door. It was my first time climbing in Manchester, there are lots of spaces/bike racks for bicycles inside the premises so I knew my bike was safe while climbing. Can't wait to go back again 🙂

The best climbing centre I have ever been to. They have the best variety, the best route setters. They care about every ability and do not have a corporate feel. The staff are supportive and are always on hand to talk you through a climb and have a laugh. They also reset ALL THE TIME!

Great place to go for some climbing fun, loads of different levels of climbing from children to really experienced, great coffee too and the staff were lovely.

We went to Rock Over last Saturday for their annual Rock Fest bouldering competition. It was awesome. Super well organised, very friendly, amazing route setting, amazingly inclusive, with very good prize money across a massive range of categories. Can't wait for next year.
