Adults climbing the wall

Join us on Saturday 4 June to climb the height of Everest - that’s nearly 8,900m!

Take part with family and friends and contribute towards ascending the great heights of Mount Everest during the Jubilee weekend.

Whether you’re a climbing pro or new to the sport, every metre counts towards the final tally. We’ll tick off landmarks such as the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and Mount Kilimanjaro on our way to reaching Everest.

For experienced climbers, join us on the recreational climbing walls where the height of every ascending route will go towards the final total.

Book your slot now.

For those younger or less experienced at climbing, Take Off activities offer a great alternative. Make your way to the top of our Tetris, 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!

Accessible climbing options are also available.

A session costs just £5, that’s more than 40% off a regular Take Off or recreational climbing session. Plus, all proceeds will go towards The Gurkha Welfare Trust who help Gurkha veterans, their families, and their wider communities to live their lives with dignity in Nepal.
