About Depot Climbing Manchester

Depot Climbing Manchester is now open in the heart of Trafford Park and aims to set a new standard for indoor bouldering centres. As the largest bouldering Wall in Europe, maybe even the world, Depot Climbing Manchester combines exceptional climbing with a high quality and friendly environment. 

Climbing and bouldering are going through a phase of rapid growth and renewed public interest - especially with the introduction of climbing to the 2020 Olympics! Building on this growth, Depot Climbing Manchester represents a new level of climbing centres that not only appeals to seasoned climbers but also as a venue for first timers, school groups, corporate groups, kids parties and fun family days out.

We offer hundreds of climbs which make up circuits for all abilities and weekly re-set's of up to 40 climbs ensures that everyone always has new stuff to go at.

From roofs and barrels to technical slabs and aretes, every style of climbing is catered for.
