Sunderland Climbing Centre

Welcome to Sunderland Climbing Centre – the premier indoor bouldering and climbing venue in the North East.
The centre includes an extensive, multi-angled bouldering wall, a dedicated roped climbing area with a unique rock buttress and a dedicated kids climbing zone. Whether you are a novice or already experienced the centre provides inspiring indoor climbing for all ages and abilities.
Climbing is a great way of keeping fit and bouldering requires very little specialist equipment. Indoor climbing provides a positive physical and mental workout for all and a great social scene.
We provide excellent facilities for all our customers with an on site cafe, viewing gallery and specialist gear shop and our team of qualified and experienced instructors are on hand to deliver taster sessions and introductory courses in both bouldering and roped climbing.

Only run once before in 1992, the Dragon’s Back Race is legendary. This film takes you in to the heart of this inspiring adventure as the 2012 race weaves a brutal path down the mountainous spine of Wales.
200 miles long - 17,000 metres of ascent - 5 days


With the summer fast approaching here is what’s on offer at Sunderland Climbing Centre:


Sunderland and Newcastle Climbing Centres are introducing generations of young people to rock climbing through their kids clubs and coaching academy at the two centres. We are aware that many of these young climbers and their families would like to climb outdoors particularly now summer is approaching. We have designed a series of weekend days out climbing at a number of top venues in Northumberland.
