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 the 21 October 2018. Follow us on Social Media @Calshotacts for progress updates.

All other facilities, including our climbing walls, will be open as usual.
