Vertical Wall



The vertical wall is a 7.3 metre 4 person climbing wall which can be climbed by people of various skill and ability due to slight differences between the 4 routes.

It takes it shape directly from rocky surfaces which give it a realistic look and feel without being abrasive and can be used alongside the handholds during climbing. A buzzer at the top, allows climbers to signal that they have made it before beginning their descent to the bottom.

The auto belay system automatically lowers climbers when they let go of the wall and adjusts to each climber’s weight to provide a safe ride back to the ground. This method allows for a high throughput of particiants within a given time

Air Rifle

Groups who wish to instruct themselves must have an N.S.R.A. qualification and bring their certificates with them
