Indoor Climbing – More Than a Total Body Workout

Appropriate for almost all ages, adding indoor rock climbing to your regular keep fit workout routine yields an array of benefits for adults and kids alike, no matter what fitness level or prior experience you may bring to the sport. Benefits from using our indoor climbing centre include increased physical fitness, improved problem-solving skills, building trust and teamwork, and an expanded social network. Using an indoor climbing wall is a healthy activity everyone from families, school groups and business associates can enjoy together. Come along and find fun ways to stay healthy.

At Alter Rock we have over 600sqm of climbing walls, comprising roped climbing and bouldering for all ages and abilities. The routes are regularly reset by some of the top climbers in the UK so you are bound to find a challenge for your skill level.

Who Can Climb?

A person does not need superhuman strength or massive arms to start climbing. In fact, it’s common to witness a young person out-climbing a burly man. What you need to begin indoor climbing is to sign up for a Learn to Climb Course at Alter Rock, Derby’s indoor climbing centre. The course will teach the necessary safety skills for indoor rock climbing.
