Suitable for ages: Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)
Venue type: Indoor
The Rock Antics Middlesbrough centre is mainly a bouldering wall, (climbing without ropes to a limited height above fitted crash mats). On the main boulder section they have over 200 problems, so if you thought it'd be a simple scrabble along and then repeat, think again! There are day's worth of options just in this section.
Once they're into it and happy to get further off the ground, they can explore a staggering 14 top rope lines giving 33 routes and a separate child's bouldering section. They also offer the First Steps climbing club which is a great induction to climbing which encourages young aspiring climbers to make the break from the bouldering.
A lounge area and a garden with a BBQ area make it easy for parents to settle in for a comfortable flinch while they watch the kids scale the heights.
Based from this centre they also offer outdoor trips to try out even more activities (for older and more confident types generally speaking) which include scrambling, coasteering, gorge walks and abseiling!
All in all loads of choices, expert assistance and some fantastic fun: so don't just step out of your comfort zone: scale it and climb out over the top of it!
