The Church (formerly known as Undercover Rock) opened in 1992 and was one of the original climbing walls in the UK. Back in 2016, we at TCA purchased the centre to give the climbers of Bristol a great set of mixed facilities throughout the city. With route walls up to 12m high and plenty of overhangs, slabs and walls, the church setting continues to provide great shapes to climb on.
We pride ourselves on having a friendly, passionate and experienced team as well as a whole host of great courses for all abilities. There’s also a cafe area within the centre that serves up locally roasted coffee from Clifton Coffee Roasters, fresh sandwich options and cakes.
If you’re thinking of driving to The Church, there’s plenty of on street parking and after 6.00pm you can park in the Better Food Company car park, less than 5 mins walk away. For cyclists, we also have a number of bike racks outside our centre for you to use.
If you’re an established climber you can just come in, sign up and you’re off. If you’ve not climbed before, you’ll need to do one of our Beginners Courses.
