Climbing Wall

The University of Derby Climbing Wall offers 164sqm of top rope and lead climbing, abseiling and bouldering.

Roped climbing walls are up to 13m long with over 20 individual route options for people of all ages and abilities. The abseil balcony is 10m high with easy access for all. The 4m high bouldering walls provide challenging climbing at a lower level with a crash matt underneath in place of the rope system.

The climbing wall is open to groups of all ages and abilities from schools to university students and staff and birthday parties to corporate team building.

Competent climbers or those just wishing to boulder can register as a climbing wall user and climb anytime it’s open. Learn more about unsupervised climbing.
