Newcastle Climbing Centre would like to wish all our customers a Merry Christmas and a big thank you for your support throughout 2014. 


Our route setting team have been hard at work over the past couple of weeks and the Bouldering Zone has a full re-set - watch out for the new volumes coming soon.

The Education Zone has also had a full re-set and the Central Zone now has over 40 new routes and 2 more Auto-belays added. The “tufas” are soon to return by popular demand. So there is plenty to work off those mince pies. CHRISTMAS
