Reopening from the 2nd of December
At Chimera Climbing, we take the health and safety of our customers and staff extremely seriously. Please do rest assured that we have put in place appropriate COVID security measures to keep you and your family as safe as possible whilst visiting the centre. We are strictly adhering to the Governmental guidelines and complying with the stringent advice of the ABC and BMC.
Although we cannot guarantee that the surfaces you come into contact with at Chimera will have been disinfected, we can guarantee that you will have plenty of opportunity to disinfect your own hands using the various sanitisers around the centre.Click To Book A Session! @ TUNBRIDGE WELLSClick To Book A Session! @ CANTERBURY

No payment is required to make a booking.
As well as allowing you to book your climbing session, the new TopLogger app will also allow you to log your ascents and keep track of your climbing record and compare yourself (in a friendly way of course) to your mates. You can also keep up to date with the new blocs as they are set, grade each climb that you send, and most importantly leave setting reviews.
We are looking forward to seeing you all crushing in the centre again soon.
