Our passion for climbing has inspired us to develop climbing walls that enable anyone and everyone to access the sport and develop the next generation of climbers.
The Climbing Academy started in Bristol in 2008 when?The Mothership?opened. We delivered on our vision to build a bouldering wall that would appeal to as many people as possible, giving them the opportunity to take part in what we think is the best sport in the world.
Soon after, we opened?The Newsroom?in Glasgow ? based in an old newspaper printing works ? bringing the city its first dedicated bouldering centre. In more recent years we took over Undercover Rock AKA?The Church, Bristol?s original roped wall in St Werburghs. In late Autumn 2018, we opened a brand new climbing centre in Glasgow.?The Prop Store?came to life in an old BBC prop store and offers both bouldering and roped climbing.
