Join us on Saturday 4 June to climb the height of the world’s highest mountain, Mount Everest - that’s 8,848m!

Take part with family and friends and contribute towards our rock-climbing relay, where together we’ll ascend to the great height of Mount Everest (Nepal) in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay first summitted Everest nearly 70 years ago and news of this great achievement reached Britain on the day of the Queen’s coronation.

For experienced climbers (members/non-members), join us on the recreational climbing walls, where the height of every ascending route will go towards the final total.

BOOK NOW

For our less experienced, or younger climbers, why not try our Jubilee Take Off Climbing. Make your way to the top of our Tetris wall, speed climbing and icicle themed routes, and be gently lowered by our auto belay systems. Every climb will be tallied and go towards meeting the Everest target!

BOOK NOW

Over the duration of the day, see how we climb our way to the top of Mount Everest, passing the height of more local attractions like the Spinaker Tower (170m), the tallest building in the world Burj Khalifa (830m), Ben Nevis (1,345m), Mount Hope (2,860m), Mont Blanc (4,807m), Everest Base Camp (5,364 m) and Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895m).

However you choose to take part, your session will cost only £5, more than 40% off your Take Off, or recreational climbing session.
