I truly can't fault this course and would recommend it to anyone who wanted to increase their skill base. Really exhilarating!!

I had a great time. It was fantastic to learn new skills with a friendly and knowledgeable instructor.

I have been to Highball for my friends birthday we had a great time and I learnt lots of new things. I really like to climb and now come with my dad.

I've tried lots of sports including BMXing, skateboarding and scootering, they don't compare to the buzz and confidence I get from climbing.

– Dan (Aged 12)

Great coffee, cakes :) + atmosphere - And a really friendly, welcoming and approachable crew. I already come back regularly, what more can I say!

I've always kept fit but I needed to build strength & lean muscle. I find the gym mundane but climbing is exciting, inclusive and never boring.

MOVIE NIGHT: The Last Great Climb

Thursday 28th November
Doors: 18:45 / Film Starts: 19:30

Join us for a very special viewing as we host the eastern regions premiere. We’ll welcome one of the stars of the film, Jason Pickles (as he sets the first round of our Winter Bouldering League) who’ll hopefully entertain us with a few special stories of his many trips with Leo.


The 2013 film from Alastair Lee is an epic to end all mountain epics set in the stunning mountains of Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. The feature documentary follows top adventure climber Leo Houlding with his tried and tested team of Jason Pickles and Sean ‘Stanley’ Leary as they attempt to make the first ascent of the NE ridge of 'the master piece of the range'; the majestic Ulvetanna Peak (2931m). One of the most technically demanding climbs in one of the world’s harshest environments.
The films tells the story of a climber's life long dream reach one of the world's most remote and difficult summits interweaved with the fascinating story of the mountain itself, which incredibly was only discovered in 1994. All set against the backdrop of the current age of mountaineering where few great lines remained unclimbed. Every inch of this daring journey is captured by multi-award winner Alastair Lee as we get to know the redoubtable and hilarious team. The team experience unprecedentedly good weather but eventually the harsh conditions begin to grind them down as inevitably the conditions become 'less favourable' whilst they attempt to defy the odds and complete the climb.

THE LAST GREAT CLIMB promises to be quite simply one of the most spectacular and inspiring mountaineering films ever made.
