Climbing wall at Nene!

You'll be belaying to your heart's content!

June 29 2017

NEW climbing wall comes to nene!

We are delighted to announce the installation of a 6-metre high climbing wall for both children and adults. Installation work has now been completed and the staff have received their training so we are now open for bookings by schools, groups and individuals. The new climbing facility is the only climbing wall in East Northamptonshire.

We are especially pleased to be able to offer a unique birthday party experience where your child and his friends can be let loose to challenge themselves on how high they can climb in a safe, secure but very importantly fun environment.

This wall is a wonderful facility for local children, giving them the opportunity to try indoor climbing as a sport – who knows, we may even help to find and nurture the countries next generation of climbing stars.”
