The Valley Bouldering Centre: Opening October 2nd

Bigger and Better

The Valley is the second climbing centre to be opened by Climb Newcastle. Building on the success of the Climb Newcastle original bouldering centre in the old Byker swimming pool. The Valley will open in Ouseburn in October 2017 and will be one of the UK's biggest bouldering centres.

Climb Newcastle is the brainchild of former british and world climbing champion Andy Earl, and well-known local climbers Chris Graham and Darren Stevenson. Their passion for climbing and bouldering will help to deliver another world-class bouldering centre.

The Valley will feature:

  • Bouldering problems from Fb 3 to 8a
  • 30m competition wall
  • Cave area
  • Circuit board
  • Steep training board
  • Training area
  • Stretching and core area
  • Showers and changing rooms
  • Coffee and shop

We're asking our brilliant community of climbers to give us a helping hand with our new venture. Here's how you can help:
