New to bouldering? Don’t worry - we’ve got you covered. Bouldering is climbing without ropes over safety matting and is a fantastic way to get fit. There is a lot more to it than just upper body strength…

At Chimera, our gym has a range of different routes to climb, from beginner through to advanced. So there is something for everyone, no matter what your ability or starting fitness level. It’s a lot more fun than running miles and miles on a treadmill in our opinion!

Climbing is great for strength building, improving balance, flexibility and co-ordination. But the best part is you are doing all that in a fun, social environment whilst having a laugh.

No expense gear is needed - you can rent shoes and chalk from reception. Just turn up, register, watch the short safety video and off you go. It makes for a great day out with friends, colleagues or even as a team building exercise.

The best thing about climbing is that there is always someone on hand to offer a bit of advice and help you go from novice to pro in no time.

Go on, give it a go, give yourself a push and you could be amazed at what you are capable of.

Open 10am - 10pm in the week, and 9am - 6pm at the weekends
