Suitable for ages: Teenagers (13-18)
Venue type: Indoor
It can be a struggle to keep teenagers entertained; especially if they have younger siblings who are usually the ones catered for on family days out, so take them to the Vertical Chill Ice Wall Covent Garden for a different kind of challenge!
This indoor ice-climbing wall is set inside a refrigerated unit with temperatures of -5°C to -12°C. At 8m in height it ranges in steepness from an easy slap to an intimidating over-hang and therefore provides a variety of routes to entertain novice and accomplished climbers alike.
All equipment is provided including insulated trousers, a warm jacket, gloves, socks and boots. Even if you’ve never climbed before, the instructors are on hand to tell you everything you need to know to get up the ice wall. Push yourself and discover what you’re made of! You may even discover a new passion at this hidden gem in Central London.
First stop Covent Garden; next stop Everest!
