What is bouldering?

Bouldering is a style of climbing free from the use of ropes. Taking place above our state of the art matting climbers are free to express themselves on hundreds of climbs (called problems) of every standard. Regardless of your level of fitness everyone can enjoy bouldering and its a superb way to keep fit in a social environment.

Here at the Depot we cater for all ages and fitness levels. We have an expert team of friendly instructors who can get you started in under an hour with one of our inductions.


To get you using the centre in a safe and considered manner we offer induction sessions for all new climbers. Our instructors will take you through all the basics so that you can gain the confidence and skills to use the Depot independently.

The session costs £15 and includes equipment hire, a 12 month membership to the wall which allows you to benefit from member entry prices to the wall and full instruction. These sessions need to be booked in advance and they run:

Adults, Tuesday and Thursdays 7-8pm, Saturday and Sunday 11-12pm.

Juniors, Tuesday and Thursday 6-7pm, Saturday and Sunday 12-1pm.
