With indoor climbing set to be part of the next Olympics, interest in the sport is on the ascent. This place offers a fun but professional introduction for kids
An indoor climbing centre offering top roping (wearing a harness attached to a rope controlled by an instructor or partner below you), lead climbing (for more experienced climbers, where you attach the rope to metal hooks, called quick draws, as you climb) and bouldering (no ropes or harness, shorter routes, a mat below), with three bays of walls up to 13 metres high. Indoor climbing was on the rise even before it was confirmed as an Olympic sport for the 2020 Games. Recognition is likely to send interest sky high. While there’s masses to entertain kids in Brighton itself, this is a great rainy-day option for all ages.
