Manchester Climbing Centre
Indoor ‘rock’ climbing has become really popular over recent years and perhaps surprisingly it really is accessible to anyone of any age. St minibus hire Manchester have been transporting people here for many years. The Manchester Climbing Centre provides safe, top quality facilities in a grade 2 listed, beautifully converted Victorian church. It is a great venue for children’s birthday parties, groups of friends wanting to learn a new skill or even corporate team building events. The centre offers different climbing courses to suit all abilities – and these can be booked on an individual basis or you can bring a group, making it the ideal activity for friends. It doesn’t matter if you are total beginners or experienced climbers wanting to push yourselves to the next level. There are also taster sessions available to give you an idea of what to expect.
Indoor climbing is an exciting, challenging and varied sport with many aspects to it. Manchester Climbing Centre aims to be inclusive to all and welcome all members of the local community and beyond. The centre offers 75 climbing lines for those seeking roped climbing – which are a mixture of top roped and lead lines. The main wall is an amazing 20 metres high, which is one of the biggest lead walls in the UK. Surrounding the main wall are various other climbing lines designed to cater for all abilities. The routes are all changed regularly to keep everything fresh and interesting. The interior of the roof is crafted from amber pine, providing a stunning backdrop to the whole centre. As well as roped climbing, you can also try your hand at ‘bouldering’ – which is climbing without any ropes, but over a crash mat to cushion any falls! Manchester Climbing Centre offers 2 bouldering areas and a traversing room – and the walls are made up of a range of different angles including horizontal roofs and shallow slabs – so you will be well catered for if you like free-styling!
Because climbing requires high levels of trust and co-operation between fellow climbers, it is an excellent activity for corporate team building. The very nature of the activity can build team spirit and aid team bonding – all very valuable attributes within a team that works together. Climbing requires constant communication and you simply have to trust and depend upon your team mates, as well as supporting and encouraging each other. It is also good for colleagues to see each other in a different environment and this can also lead to increased bonds and morale within the team. The skills developed through climbing transfer easily back to the workplace and this can improve productivity and the overall workplace environment.
