Welcome to

The Mothership

Based in the heart of Bristol, The Mothership is the first climbing wall we opened. It’s a dedicated bouldering centre designed as a space for climbers of all abilities, and we’re proud to be the climbing centre of choice for many budding local climbers and professionals. We also strive to make the sport as inclusive as possible, ensuring that anyone who’s anyone can come and try it out.

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. We think it’s a great social activity and a brilliant way to get active with a group of mates. Haven’t climbed before? Just come on down, watch a short induction video and you can get started straight away!
