Work is almost complete on the UK’s highest man-made outdoor climbing wall right here at ROKT and ready to launch from May 14, 2017, onwards.
Higher than both the Tower of London and the Angel of the North, the towering ROKTFACE wall at ROKT climbing centre in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, will see people climb routes up to 36m.
The cost to climb ROKTFACE for competent rope climbers will be £15 for up to 1 hour 30 minutes and that price includes full entry to climb inside ROKT Climbing Centre.
For beginners/novice climbers, you will need an instructed session to climb ROKTFACE. These can be pre-booked and cost £30 for one person, £50 for two people, £60 for three people or £70 for four. Basically, the more people the cheaper it is. Group bookings (schools/team building/stag/hen/Scouts/Guides etc) taken too, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The climbing wall is being created on one of the faces of a sky-scraping disused grain silos, which sits alongside the Calder and Hebble canal. Around 2,500 bolts are being drilled to create up to 21 unique routes.
The £75,000 project is being led by ROKT climbing in partnership with Calderdale Council to help raise the profile and participation of healthy activity as well as tourism for the area.
It will give daredevils views of up to around 20 miles across Yorkshire – the UK’s biggest county.
The routes have been set by respected climbers and range from 28m to 36m high.
