Come climbing today at the South West’s largest indoor climbing centre.

Located in the heart of Exeter’s Quayside, we’ve got some of the most extensive top rope and lead climbing in the South West, as well as bouldering and Clip ‘n Climb and our friendly team of instructors ready to welcome you to the centre.   We’re easily accessible on foot, by bike or in your car from all directions (there’s plenty of parking nearby too).  

We're all getting used to new ways of doing things so, for the time being, we will be doing things a little differently at The Quay. Please read our FAQ's before your visit so you know what to expect
