Welcome to

The Mothership

Based in the heart of Bristol, The Mothership is a dedicated bouldering centre, which is a safe and welcoming space for people of all backgrounds and abilities. We have a strong and supportive climbing community that will encourage and support you on your climbing journey.

The centre has walls of every angle to suit experienced climbers and complete newcomers, as well as a range of courses. We have extensive training facilities including a gym, a woody, campus board and MoonBoard as well as endurance circuits and a state-of-the-art Lattice board. There is even a treatment room for those aches and pains.

Our large cafe is open to anyone. We offer fresh, locally roasted coffee and delicious snacks. We are open to the public, so feel free to swing by even if you’re not climbing. The climbing shop at The Mothership has climbing clothes, shoes, some equipment, guidebooks and knowledgeable staff who can help you with shoe fittings and specialist climbing advice.

We are determined to make climbing more inclusive and are active supporters of the Bristol Inclusive Climbing Festival.

 

EVERYONE IS WELCOME

COME AND TRY CLIMBING

Bouldering is a form of climbing performed on low-level walls above crash mats. It’s an easy sport to get into and doesn’t require the use of harnesses or ropes. Plus you don’t have to complete a course to start bouldering. We think it’s a great social activity and a brilliant way to get active with family or friends. Haven’t climbed before? Getting started is really easy. Read our New Climbers page or pop in for a chat.

 

“Love climbing at TCA, great staff and variety of routes and always a good atmosphere.”
