Standing at 7m high and with 30 different routes, Benham Rock is the impressive indoor climbing wall within Benham Sports Arena. Whether you are an experienced climber wanting to hone your skills, or a complete novice wanting to try something new, then the Benham Rock is the place to go. The climbing wall is open to individuals and groups as well as being available for parties. Individuals wishing to use the wall must have first filled out a registration form - although this is not applicable to any instructor led sessions which are supervised by a qualified CWA (Climbing Wall Award) instructor.

Instructed sessions must be booked in advance, however individual climbers can just turn up, provided they have the relevant experience to climb unsupervised. Equipment is available to hire but experienced climbers are invited to use their own harnesses and belay devices should they so wish.
