Rock Climbing in Devon
Exeter is home to the South West’s largest indoor wall, housed within the Quay Climbing Centre. The imposing venue makes use of the huge atrium space built into one of Devon’s largest and iconic industrial buildings – formerly the city’s electricity works and offers great fun and a real challenge for the experienced climber, or those just wanting to learn with qualified instructors.
Easy, medium or difficult climbs are also accessible at the Climbing Centre for children as young as 4 as well as the most experienced rock monkeys, housed within the building through Clipnclimb - an exciting themed climbing adventure. The Climbing Centre has its own café, making it a great day out for the whole family.
Haven Banks Outdoor Education Centre also on the quayside runs both taster sessions and courses for Adults and Young people in both climbing and abseiling. Taster sessions offer the opportunity for groups to experience rock-climbing, perhaps for the first time, on real rock faces.
The barn is a dedicated climbing venue, so if you are passionate about climbing or obsessed with bouldering, then you will feel right at home. Housed in a massive barn, this uniquely crafted climbing wall and freestanding boulder provides a friendly and social place to train hard and meet other climbers.
Indoor climbing has never been more accessible – no experience is required to enjoy Clip ‘n Climb. Our auto belay system ensures that you can climb safely without assistance. Once you’ve finished your climb, if you want to come off or if you lose your balance, the system lowers you gently to the group ready to start again or move onto another climb.
Enjoy climbing with your family or friends at the South West’s largest indoor climbing wall. The Quay Climbing Centre is located in the heart of Devon’s Quayside in the Old Electricity Building. The building formerly house the generators powering Exeter’s tram network and is now provides a majestic arena in which to climb.
