About Depot Climbing Birmingham

Birmingham's biggest bouldering centre, bringing modern climbing to the city in a bright and spacious indoor environment.

Bouldering is a style of climbing that does not involve ropes or a harness, climbing at lower levels and relying on matting underneath the wall to aid with the risk of falling. Our walls are up to 4 meters high and the matting does not guarantee your safety, so roped climbing may be more suitable if you have reservations about the risks involved in bouldering.

We opened in November 2017 and have developed and expanded our wall to become Birmingham’s largest and most comprehensive bouldering wall, with over 500 hundred square meters of floor space and over 300 boulders for all abilities. We also have an expansive training area for experienced climbers and a comprehensive gym offering on a 1st-floor mezzanine.
