BB is SIX, Saturday 30th March

On 30th March we're holding SIX, our sixth anniversary competition event! The centre will be closed to general climbing for the whole day for the event, but resuming normal service on Sunday 1st April. Booking for the event now open!

This should be a super fun day, suitable for a wide range of climbing abilities, from grades 3A upwards. First time competitors are welcome, and spectators for the finals at 19:30 would be great. See the event page for full details.

Busy & quiet times

Weekends: Saturday mornings are generally less busy than Sunday mornings, so if you're bringing children that can be a good option. For adults, after 2pm is normally much calmer as under 12s aren't allowed to climb during these times. During term times, Sunday nights between 5-8pm can be busy with our Sussex Uni student sessions

Weekdays: There's normally loads of space during our off-peak times (before 5pm Mon-Fri). If you're after an evening weekday climb, the quietest times are Monday nights and Friday nights (except for our monthly Friday night comp, see the events page for upcoming dates)
