Dear climbing community,

In view of the current health crisis we have made the difficult decision to close the Newcastle Climbing Centre. We will be closed from 10pm today, Wednesday 18th March. In so doing we aim to play our part in helping the national effort to stem the spread of the Covid-19 virus. We will continue to review the situation and heed all guidance issued by the government and health services.

All existing climbing passes will be frozen as of Monday 16th March and will be available for renewal as soon as we re-open. If you have any questions please send an email.

In the meantime we will be taking the opportunity, in tandem with our sister company Rockworks Climbing Walls and the staff team, to upgrade and refurb our climbing facility. Our aim will be to offer an even better indoor climbing experience to all our customers when we re-open.

We hope you understand and support our decision and we look forward to welcoming you back to our centre in the near future.

Please follow our social media channels for updates and best wishes to everyone from the staff team at the Newcastle Climbing Centre.

Due to the latest government advice on COVID-19 we are disappointed to announce the postponement of the 2020 Para Masters Competition, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday 18th April.

The event will be rescheduled for later this year.
