What does it takes to hack your way up nearly 50ft of vertical ice?

Well now’s your chance! The Ice Factor indoor ice climbing wall is the ideal environment for practicing, training and learning all aspects of ice climbing. Our instructors have probably taught more people to ice climb than any organisation on the planet!

Inside the ice climbing wall there are routes from simple easy angled snow slopes through to challenging, thin ice/rock mixed climbing. Experienced winter climbers have the opportunity of pushing their grade, developing advanced techniques, or simply testing shiny new gear!

The ice climbing arena holds nearly 400 tonnes of snow/ice. This is packed onto the wall, giving depths from a couple of centimeters to nearly a metre.

The routes are all shaped by hand to give an authentic ice climbing experience. The temperature is controlled to keep the area below zero. We emulate the pattern of nature to recreate a ‘freeze/thaw’ cycle, this turns the snow to neve, hard packed, compressed snow suitable for climbing on.

The range of routes ensures whether you are a total beginner or a regular mountaineer that you will be presented with a challenging and rewarding experience.
