Both of my boys climb. They have done bits of outdoor stuff when they have been away at camp, but mostly, they climb here. This is Derby Climbing Centre, Alter Rock.
In top roping, the ropes are already in situ, meaning that the climber has the security of knowing there is a rope above him at all times. Also, there is no need to clip in during the ascent. Once again, a partner is needed for the belay.
Finally, down the right of the building, are the bouldering walls.
Lower again, these are the walls tackled without ropes. They consist of a mixture of overhangs, ledges and volumes (red sticky out things).
At the moment, a large area of the central flooring has been ripped out to make way for a new large, free-standing fin which will almost double the climbing available. It's due to be finished by early September, so it'll be interesting to see what it's like.
