London Climbing Guides opinion of Better.org.uk sites



Better.org.uk recently took back control of 6 sites that used to be managed by Climb London/ High-Sports company. Better.org.uk covers 6 climbing walls (see link below for locations), based inside existing gyms/sports centres. The gyms in themselves do tend to be smaller than the dedicated climbing centres but do offer an interesting array of climbing in a number of easily accessible centres around London.

1 MEMBERSHIP 6 SITES

To keep things simple one annual membership gives you access to the 6 climbing walls across London for only £10.50. Once you've got a membership, you can climb anytime during opening hours with a variety of payments options: 10-session pass, 30-day pass, monthly Direct Debit or simply pay-as-you-go.
