Sunderland Wall

 

There are many excellent modern climbing walls situated across the North East. Sunderland Wall is a well established climbing centre in Pallion that provides both extensive bouldering and over 100 roped climbs up to 23m high. ClimbNewcastle is a dedicated bouldering wall in what was Byker Swimming Baths. Eden Rock is another superb dedicated bouldering centre located near Carlisle city centre. The Lakeland Climbing Centre, AKA Kendal Wall has seen major development since it open back in 1993. As well as bouldering and roped climbing there is a dedicated training room, Via Ferrata and even Krazy Climb! Summer evenings can be enjoyed outdoors (and for free) on the fantastic artificial boulder at Whickham Thorns, Dunston, Gateshead.
