Hotrock is a climbing wall owned by Mountaineering Ireland, and managed and situated at Tollymore National Outdoor Centre.
At Hotrock there is a lead wall and a bouldering area. The lead wall is 9.5m high and 11m wide; the bouldering wall is 4.5m high and 10m wide. A campus board and finger board have recently been added to the bouldering area. There are now also four auto-belay devices on the lead wall.
The climbing surfaces are made from a textured fibreglass medium with rock features. A range of bolt-on holds are also in use. The lead wall has over 40 routes ranging from easier slab lines to more technical and strenuous routes through the grades.
The bouldering area allows individuals to climb without a rope and offers a wide range of technical problems with crash matting to soften the impact of falls. The wall is designed to encourage maximum participation for all abilities.
Climbing equipment may be hired for use on the wall.
We have no upper age limit but participants under 14 must be accompanied by an adult wall user.
Qualified staff are available at specific times to facilitate training in the use of the wall and develop climbing skills. The wall also hosts climbing competitions and other events.
