Alter Rock Indoor Climbing and Activity Centre in Derby

cave-charactersClimb, swing and crawl – all at our Derby Activity Centre

Alter Rock Indoor Climbing Centre is Derby’s leading centre for learning climbing skills. You can progress from complete beginner to Instructor with us and be challenged by over 600 square metres of graded climbing walls and bouldering problems.  And we have other fun activities to suit all ages and abilities such as swinging along the Air Walk aerial assault course or crawling through the Labyrinth Cave.

Perhaps you have tried other climbing centres and want to have a go at something more challenging? At Alter Rock we have experienced instructors to teach climbing skills so you can improve your techniques and climb with confidence on routes from the Peak District to Yosemite!

Whether you are after a sociable way to keep fit, seek to improve your climbing ability or want a children’s party with a difference, we are here to help.

Who Can Rock 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.
