Coming in hot! Here are the submitted scores for CRACKS-N-CRIMPS! 

Save 10% on Courses this November and December!
Brighten up the dark winter nights and spark up your grey matter learning a new skill this November and December at the Castle! 
You can save 10% on your next course* with a wide range of courses available to choose from to take your climbing to the next level. 
This is the perfect opportunity to learn to climb or enhance your current skills in an iconic Grade II listed Castle, and unlock a plethora of new climbing in 2024. 

We want to give all our climbers advance notice that prices will be changing in September. 

With the cost of living crisis continuing, this will probably come as no surprise to most of you. Despite trying to hold off as long as we can, it has come to the point where in order to keep operating safely we need to take this step. 

We’re looking to hire 2 part time staff members to join our lively Front of House team. There are two roles; hours will vary between 20-30hrs per week, including evenings and weekend. In this role, you will have the opportunity to be cross departmentally trained for all areas of Front of House, giving you variety and knowledge across all areas!

What’s Life Like in the Front of House Department?

The Front of House roles at the Castle are varied and busy offering training and work across all three departments: Shop, Café, and Reception.

Are you looking for a real challenge that will place you at the heart of one the world’s most iconic indoor climbing centres? As the Operations Manager you will oversee the day-to-day operations of the centre, providing a reference point regarding the management of daily activities for staff and customers, while ensuring that safety is paramount, and our customers have the best time ever. You will be responsible for the line management of two the Front of House teams - Duty Managers & Reception – and for the day to day maintenance of the centre.

Staff Training Taking Place Friday 12th May
Please be aware that the Castle will be opening late on Friday 12th of May to allow time for our staff training. This means all climbing areas, plus the Shop and the Cafe, will all be closed during the morning, all reopening at 12 midday.  
We apologise for the inconvenience.


Café Closed 11th May
In addition to the full closure on Friday, the Café will be closed all day on Thursday 11th May for staff training and installation of new equipment. 

Update Wednesday 26th April: Castle open as normal.

If you’ve been brightening up the bleak winter months with visits to the Castle, you will have noticed the diggers and mounds of earth round by the outdoor boulders. You’ve probably guessed that the extremely popular boulders are getting a refurbishment ready for the long hazy days of summer!

We’re psyched to be able to expand this unique and hugely popular part of the Castle. The predicted opening date is for May 2023.

The Castle are looking for an experienced climbing instructor to join the team. This role will be focussed on delivering our popular Castle Climbing Club sessions aimed at children and young people aged 7-17 years. You will be guaranteed 6 hours per week, with the opportunity for extra hours. 

Sadly, the Rockley Wall (one of the Castle’s original walls) is no longer fit for purpose and the panels are increasingly becoming beyond repair. As a result, we have taken the decision to retire the existing wall and give it a full refurbishment. 
For many years the fibreglass features have served us well, a key feature of the centre enjoyed by thousands of climbers over many years it has stood at the Castle. No doubt those “feature only” routes have seen plenty of epics!
