ROCfest 5.0 is coming


The newest version of the much-loved ROCfest is on its way. With a host of exciting upgrades the ROCfest 5.0 will be an event not to be missed.


Routes from two of the world’s best setters combined with a fresh new facelift for Rock Over Climbing Centre would be enough for most people, but not for us here at Rock Over Climbing. We’ve added a dyno competition, demos from DMM and their gear tester, a slackline jam and some exciting additions to the final. Combine this with our usual home-made food, some hyped-up tunes and a selection of lighting for the finals, and you’ve started to get close to the feel of the ROCfest.


With such a huge range of things to do, the updated, improved and ever popular ROCfest is sure to be one of the largest events on the calendar. Last year’s event filled up weeks before the day, with over 200 spaces disappearing in the blink of an eye. With a handy pre-pay system you could even save yourself a bit of cash, so make sure you register online (opens late November).


So make sure you beat the winter blues and give yourself something to look forward to!

We’ll see you there!


What is bouldering?

You need no ropes, harnesses or other equipment to do it, and there are no scary heights involved! Anybody of any fitness, ability or strength can enjoy bouldering; there is something in it for everyone.

A great work out.

It is a fantastic way of keeping fit and strong, but without putting too much pressure on your body. Watch as you quickly develop and continuously set yourself new heights to aim for.


Just as when you were young and used to climb trees or swing around on the climbing frames, bouldering is a natural, and addictive, sport.


Climbing and bouldering is an extremely relaxed and sociable pastime. It is a great way of meeting new people and staying fit, whilst having fun at the same time.

A challenge.

Some people look to challenge themselves to climb as hard as possible, others just look to enjoy the freedom of movement. You will find a complete mix of abilities from beginners, children, adults, families, and world-class climbers all enjoying themselves.

For the family.

Parents and children can climb together, or if you prefer Mums and Dads, you can just chill reading the paper and having one of our tummy-filling cakes, whilst the little ones wear themselves ragged having a brilliant time on our walls.
