Facilities at The Lock
The Lock Climbing Wall offers a range of climbing options, from beginners to aspirant athletes and everything in between. The centre has over 120 climbing routes available, up to 14 meters high and most lines can be “lead” or “top-roped”.
The centre has 2 dedicated bouldering areas with 30+ “problems” (ranging from VB – V5+), as well as a specific training area – including a campus board, 45 board, finger boards, gymnastic rings and free-weights.
Additionally, we have 3 auto belays available, an outside “featured” climbing tower for “top-roping” and an abseiling platform.
There is a small café here at The Lock offering hot and cold drinks, a selection of snacks and a range of sandwiches and wraps. You are also welcome to bring your own food to consume on-site and we have some outside picnic benches available to use.
The Lock Climbing Wall has a small selection climbing consumables onsite, as well as holding a couple of our favourite harnesses and belay devices. So if you are looking for climbing basics or need a top up on your chalk we’ll be able to sort you out.
The Centre offers limited parking, however there is a large free carpark nearby at The Moorhen Pub. Please be considerate to our neighbours and do not park in residential bays or on the road outside the centre (Most of the roads have double yellow lines or are clearways, which could result in a parking ticket)
