Quay Climbing Centre
Enjoy climbing with your family or friends at the South West’s largest indoor climbing wall. The Quay Climbing Centre is located in the heart of Exeter’s Quayside in the Old Electricity Building. The building formerly house the generators powering Exeter’s tram network and is now provides a majestic arena in which to climb.
The Quay is the perfect all weather destination, whether you are a committed outdoor sports enthusiast seeking shelter from inclement weather or simply seeking something different to do in the city. It is within walking distance of the city centre and quayside.
We run taster sessions for beginners and novices – they are a great way to have a go at climbing. Our instructors will guide you through the basics of climbing in our dedicated instruction zone – they will soon have you scaling your first wall. We run group sessions for larger groups as well as birthday parties - the perfect fun packed celebration.
For committed climbers we offer routes for all levels on our top roped and lead walls which range from 7 to 14 metres high. For those seeking the ultimate challenge bring your 50 metre rope – you will need it on the lead wall! If high walls are not for you, have a go at bouldering where you can climb without ropes on much lower walls. With two boulder caves, we have challenges for those who just want to give it a go and those who can’t stay away from the rock.
The Workshop Cafe overlooks the climbing arena and is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the view of the action. We serve a range of hot and cold drinks, cakes and a daily menu of panini’s, toasties and hot dishes.
Check online for details of special events, holiday sessions and competitions that run throughout the year or for more information on courses and taster sessions.
