Summer “NICC” starts July 25th till 4th Sept

Back by popular demand “Newcastle Indoor Climbing Competition” with great prizes to be won from Rockworks Climbing, there will be 12 new routes to either top-rope or lead and the comp will run for 6 weeks.

You can take as long as you like to complete the competition. The category winners will be announced in early September.


From outdoor climbing days to indoor competition and our own “School of Rock”, we have a great range of events and courses for all throughout the summer months.


There will be no change this year to our opening hours during the summer.
Open as normal from 10am Monday to Sunday.


These days are aimed at young climbers and their families who wish to experience and learn the skills required to climb outdoors. No prior climbing experience is required – just a reasonable level of general fitness and good health. Mums and Dads are encouraged to take part and have a go – but it is absolutely fine to simply come and watch and perhaps bring a picnic and make a day of it. Cost includes transport , expert instruction & equipment hire.


Schools out!

Looking for exciting activities for the kids during the School Break? Our Kids Climbing Clubs are an ideal way for them to develop new skills, meet new friends and burn off excess energy!

Our holiday climbing sessions for kids are £9.00 per session and open to children aged between 5 and 14 years old. 


The School of Rock is aimed at young people (7 years +) wishing to improve their skills through coaching and specialist instruction. 8 hours of climbing over 2 days (11am till 3pm each day) drink provided (please bring packed lunch).
