What we offer
We are operated by Nexus Community who provide leisure facilities on behalf of the local councils. The Climb falls under Chiltern District Council.
Indoor Rock Climbing is one of a select group of activities which helps the individual to develop life skills. Team working, Trust, Confidence Building, Co-ordination, Spatial Awareness and Determination are all key skills which participants are required to develop to be successful at the sport. Due to its reliance on these life skills, it truly is an activity which is open to all, success is very much down to the individuals ability to carry out these skills in a practical situation. From our experiences here at The Climb, some of the greatest development has come from those participants who are often regarded as less sporty or lacking confidence.
