Calshot climbing wall

The climbing wall at Calshot is the biggest in Hampshire with 1200 square metres of climbing and 80 rope lines

We are building a new bouldering wall!

We will be replacing the bouldering wall with a new state of the art bouldering cave which is due to open early 2019.  While we build the new wall, our current bouldering wall will be closed from Sunday 21 October 2018. Follow us on Social Media @Calshotacts for progress updates. 
All other facilities, including our climbing walls, will be open as usual.
