Installed in 2012 JAGS wall climbing wall is a realative new commer to the London CLimbing Scene. The wall is a fun hidden gem compromising of a nine metre high roped wall (with 9 lines) and two bouldering walls. Climbing routes vary between 4+ and 7A and the routes are changed every 2-3 weeks to ensure we keep you on your toes. Mainly open to members of the JAGs sports centre, they do provide open sessions to non-members on Fri/Sat/Sun evenings.
The London Climbing Guides opinion
A very recent addition to the London Climbing scene. This converted squash court is a hidden south London gem of the JAGS sports Centre, a stones throw from Dulwich Village. Mainly used by members of the JAGS sports centre and it seems a shame that it's not more widely used by non-members. The wall is well equipped and neatly put together, evern though the space is small it is well thought out and challenging.
Housed in the JAGS (John Allen Girls School) sports centre the wall was installed in 2012. It compromises of a nine metre high roped wall (with 9 lines) and two bouldering walls complete. The impresseiv glass entrance and viewing gallery for spectating give the wall and added dimention. The space is fully air-conditioned and has generous lighting with both full, ambient and spot lighting. They have a blue tooth enabled sounds system which means you play your tunes straight off your Smartphone which is pretty cool!
Climbing routes vary between 4+ and 7A and provide an avenue for climbers to consistently challenge themselves. The routes are changed every 2-3 weeks to ensure we keep you on your toes. The wall itself consists of 2 corners, 1 mini roof and an array of angles that will make the summit even more deserved. We wanted to create something for everyone that will enhance the inner climber within them.
