Climbing Routes

This list outlines many of the possible routes on the wall. A route can be climbed using only the bolt-on holds, or by also using the moulded natural features. These features include ‘pockets’ and ‘smears’. ‘Pockets’ are the deep holes and ‘smears’ are the moulded edges.

The routes are graded assuming that you use the ‘smears’ as foot holds in addition to the stated colour of bolt-on holds.

If only the ‘smears’ are used for footholds, the route will typically increase in difficulty by about a grade.

If ‘pockets’ and ‘smears’ are used for footholds, the grade of the route will decrease.

Routes finish at the highest hold on the route.

Please add your comments / grade suggestions to the list at the reception area. If you climb a combination that is not shown on this list, and you think it is particularly good, please let us know and we will add it to this list.


Current situation

As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.

We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.

Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.

How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
