Friction Bouldering

Whether you’re an experienced climber or a complete novice, this bouldering gym caters to every ability and aims to create an inclusive setting.

The walls have a variety of holds ranging from the lower grades to more difficult ones, meaning there’s something for everyone. The routes for each colour are changed every few weeks, so there’s always something new to look forward to.

There’s also a yoga studio and gym area which have been specifically designed with climbers in mind.

Adding to the community feel is a café and chill-out space, so you can relax with a drink or snack after your climb or do some work using the free wifi. They also hold weekly socials and student discount days.
