Our Vision is to make Highball 'a great place to work, climb, train and hang out'.

All climbing sessions need to be pre-booked online.


We are operating with very different procedures and measures to help prevent the spread of Covid19.

You will need to book on to an Open Climbing Session, which are available Monday to Sunday.

You can keep up to date with all our current Covid19 Measures and updates here.

Adult Beginners

If you have little or no climbing experience, or just want to have a go. View our available courses here.

Youth U18

Under 18’s need to be supervised when climbing. We have a progressive Activity and Coaching Program for Juniors, Youths and Teens.

Experienced Climbers

If you are a competent, independent climber, you will probably want to know about our registration process and entry prices.

Bring a Group

Booking a party, group or want to use our facility as a Climbing Professional? With current guidelines, we are temporarily pausing this service.



Always a great atmosphere at Highball. I've been bouldering here quite a few times with my partner and various friends and it doesn't seem to matter what skill level you are, everyone is friendly, helpful and courteous. Also leave your snacks at home - the cakes, brownies, cookies and vegan burritos they sell are all exactly what you'll want when you're finished!

"From the first time I stepped foot in highball, I was hooked. I've been going here 4-8 times a month for just over 2 years (excluding covid lockdowns, obviously). I love it! Great people, excellent climbs and superb food. It's everything I want from a climbing centre and more! I can't wait to come back when restrictions are lifted."

"I haven't climbed for at least 5 years so was somewhat apprehensive as to how a noob such as myself would be received. I have to say, what an experience. Everyone was so supportive and helpful, I managed to progress quite a bit in my short stay, thanks to how helpful everyone was!"

"Great space, regularly updated climbs and a wide range of difficulty. Good for beginners and experienced climbers, and relaxed atmosphere and a great cafe (seriously, try the cake) . Strong COVID measures so I feel very safe whilst climbing."

"The staff are so good with children- they really make the session fun and are kind gentle people. The recruitment is excellent because the feeling is the same no matter who or how you are dealing with the crew (phone or in person). The cafe is great and the clientele are charming and cut from the same cloth as the crew. Like attracts like in this case and it all inspires me to have a go too. Quality- I highly recommend it. My 7 year old daughter hates loud music and she loves the relaxed atmosphere here. Well done Highball."

"What a fantastic place! Extensive climbing walls and bouldering. These folk are all experienced climbers and this a good place for the complete beginner or anyone looking for a friendly climbing gym. Safety first - they keep you very safe and go at the right pace. An added bonus; it has a great little cafe with home-baked goods and excellent coffee."

"I've been coming here since 2014, on and off. Literally! A great place to be. Positive vibe, great for physical and more importantly mental well being. Great food and coffee. Great people, climbers and staff."

"Took my 7 and 9 year old for their first 'proper' climbing experience and they loved this place. A professional outfit and very safe environment."

Richard W Google

"Many people have commented on how brilliant the instructors are with children but they are equally as helpful and knowledgeable with adults alike. Amazing place to develop climbing skills whatever level or age you are."

"Took my boyfriend here for his birthday. We both thoroughly enjoyed it! Great place with a great atmosphere! Nice community calmed me right down and I can't believe they got me bouldering confidently so quickly! Would definitely love to go back!"

Caitlin Q Google Review

"First time here tonight and absolutely loved it. Nice and easy setup and even on a busy night there was loads of room to climb. Even had a break with a drink and cake and it was lush! Very reasonable price and would highly recommend. Especially if you're a novice with no strength like me, a great place to learn at your own pace."

Harry B Google Review

"Great bouldering venue with some top-roping and auto-belay routes too. Routes changed regularly. Great little cafe and pizza on Thursday nights. Also a gym and yoga classes available."
