Climbing Wall Activities

Our climbing wall stands at 11m tall and 18m wide with 14 routes which can be used simultaneously along with an overhang to test your lead climbing. Get your body moving upwards at Trinity Sport with routes ranging from beginner to advance there are plenty of opportunities for you to learn and progress your climbing skills. Whether you're new to rock climbing or a friendly neighbourhood Spiderman, Trinity Sport has everything you need to start your climb.

Join the climbing team at Trinity Sport for a four week course teaching you the basics of climbing, health and safety, knot tying and belaying. At the end of the four weeks there will be an opportunity to gain your site specific top rope license to use the climbing wall.

Adult Climbing Wall Course

This course is aimed at people who would like to take up climbing. You do not need any experience but equally it is suitable for those who have climbed before. You will be taught the basic techniques for indoor top rope climbing on our city centre wall. On the last night of the course you will be assessed and if you meet the requirements will then be issued an online subscription meaning you can use Trinity Sports Climbing wall unsupervised (please be aware to top rope climb you will need two licensed climbers to use the wall).

Group Climbing Sessions

Open to both members and non-members ages 5+, our group climbing sessions are available for groups of 8+. These sessions can be 60 - 120 minutes long with qualified instructors and all equipment is provided.

We have everything you need here, just wear something comfortable that isn’t too baggy or too short. This is not a class, but the best way to experience what climbing at Trinity Sport is all about!
