The Climbing Works is an indoor bouldering wall that was opened at the start of December 2006 in Sheffield, UK with over 1000 square meters of indoor climbing surface in a 10,000sq. ft. building. There are 8-10 graded circuits, each consisting of 40 colour-coded boulder problems, usually reset every 3 months on a rolling basis on a variety of angles and wall shapes. We also have a huge dedicated Berghaus Competition Wall that is reset every few months in the summer and every month during the winter, plus a dedicated kid's bouldering area with it's most popular feature being the "slide", the UK's biggest, best and highest campus board, as well as regular winter competitions starting in November and climbing lectures (see our event calendar).
