Our climbing wall is open for use six days a week; Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday evening plus Saturday and Sunday daytime.

If you’re new to climbing, get involved in our open sessions with challenges and games on our 10.5 metre climbing wall. Want to get better at climbing? We run NICA’s (National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme) sessions, giving those who want to learn more about it, the chance to develop their climbing skills, a great entry into the sport of climbing and a brilliant addition to any CV!

The wall is open to all ages, genders and skill levels and manned by fully qualified staff every single session.

Our outdoor adventure activity programme runs throughout the year, with trips for seniors and juniors as well as core activities offered outdoors here at the Youth Zone.

We currently offer Archery within WYZ and trips out climbing at local rock faces, upcoming activities include various water-sports and mountain-boarding.

Young people gain a lot from our outdoor adventure programme, everything from gain new experiences, developing confidence, building team work skills and trust in others.
