Climbers holding hands

10 Reasons Why Going Climbing Is Better Than Being In A Relationship

Stuck for something to do this Valentine's Day? Not to worry! We're open until 10pm, and we feel there are plenty of reasons why coming down for a Climb is better than being in a relationship anyway! Check out our top 10 below!

The Wall will never hold you back!

You will always achieve something when you’re at the Climbing Wall! Doesn’t matter how little or big the achievement is, there is only one-way up the wall! We want to see you achieve your goals and continuously improve; there is no better feeling for our instructors than seeing people improve and become competent and confident climbers.

There are plenty of training opportunities on offer here, some of the most popular are:

  • Step Up to Lead
  • Personal 1-1 Coaching
  • 4 Week Basics Course

You can enquire with any of our instructors for more information on the courses! We don’t want to see anyone held back or not reaching their potential so just let us know what you want to achieve and we will do our best to help!

The Wall is ALWAYS there for you (and will NEVER talk back!)

We’re open 10am-10pm in the week and 10am-6pm at the weekends and the coffee machine is always on, so no matter what kind of day you’ve had, we’ll be here for you to come and smash a few routes and make yourself feel loads better!

It will only better you

There are loads of benefits as to why Climbing is so good for you, and you won’t have the issue of putting on a few pounds like a lot of people find themselves doing when they start a new relationship! Each time you come to the wall you will be improving your skills in some way, even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time, you will only be getting better! Whether it is just clocking up more climbs, practicing some technique or improving your strength and endurance, each session will help! To read our Top 10 benefits of Climbing, click here!

You will never get stood up!

A good belay partner is never hard to find, so you’ll never be left to climb on your own! There will always be someone at the centre who will step in to belay if you have no one. 

No need to compromise

We have plenty of different routes up to suit all types and abilities of climbers, from beginner to advanced, so you will never have to worry that there will be nothing here for you! The routes are also clearly graded, so you know what you’re letting yourself in for!

You can spend as much time with your friends as you like

There’s no one around to tell you when to go home; the longer you’re here with them the better! It is such a great atmosphere here that most people before they know it have already spent a couple of hours climbing and socialising!

As well as our indoor climbing wall, we also arrange frequent outdoor climbing trips during the summer months and this year we have a climbing trip to Spain in September! Spaces are still available so check out more information about the trip here!

Being pestered is not an option

It’s against the rules to Climb with your phone, so what better excuse for not replying! We have everything you could possibly need here, good music, good company and a great atmosphere!

Leave your phone at home and socialise with real people, trust me it will be refreshing!

You’ll never need to do the dishes

Our café has the best food! Treat yourself to a romantic meal of pizza or a bowl of chips (or both!) and don’t worry about having to clear up afterwards, we’ve got it covered! 

Defining your relationship as ‘on the rocks’ is nothing to be ashamed of!

Also a great excuse for posting photos of yourself and a mate at the top of a route, staring romantically over a sunset, and no one will take the mick out of your bromance!

Grabbing multiple jugs is not frowned upon

You can’t help clinging to a few different ones, how else are you going to make it to the top? It doesn’t matter whether you pinch or grab… it’s all acceptable here! 

So no need to worry if you're single this Valentine's Day, we're open until 10pm and we're here for you!
