Tuesdays are climbing nights at Bournemouth climbing wall Dorset. This impressive climbing wall built in 2011 is situated in Harewood Colleges state of the art sports hall. At up to 11m high with 17 rope lines the wall will provide a challenge for all levels of climber from beginner to the hard core sports climber.
The wall will open every Tuesday evening from 7-10pm for top roping, leading and traversing. Membership is open to all climbers who are able to demonstrate the basic safety skills;

Tying on to the rope
Belaying another climber
Members will then be able to sign in up to 2 guests.
If you are not already a climber, don’t worry. We run a series of courses from tasters sessions for you to see what is all about, through to beginners courses to get you to the level required for wall membership. We also run advanced courses indoors and out for climbers wanting to improve or extend their abilities
The climbing wall at Harewood College is one of the best school walls in the country. Constructed by King Kong Climbing Walls in 2011 it is split into 3 main areas;
The main wall
This wall has 12 independent rope lines with 2-3 routes on each, all of which can be top roped or lead climbed. It ranges from 9-11m in height, varying from vertical walls to various overhangs the largest of which overhangs an impressive 3m. Route grades on this wall vary from F4 to F7a.
The left hand edge of this wall has a featured over hanging section and the wall itself is split by a challenging corner crack.
All of the roped routes are set with top ropes however they can all also be used for lead climbing. You will need to bring your own rope & quick draws (max 7) if you wish to do this.
