Unlike Indoor Bouldering there is a certain amount of skill to be mastered, such as tying in knots & belaying a partner, as well as the climbs being higher than in bouldering. That said the centre caters for all abilities.

We currently climb indoors most Tuesdays in Liverpool, typically doing 2 weeks climbing (of which the 1st week will be tailored for beginners) and then a week bouldering; alternating between Awesome Walls (roped climbing) and The Hangar (bouldering). There may be the occasional week with no event, so please look carefully at event dates!

Liverpool Awesome Walls climbing centre is based in a lofty, one hundred and fifty year old church. You can lead climb to the rafters on grades to suit all climbers, or stand watching in the aisles with a cup of tea. As well as a variety of top roped routes, there is also a range of bouldering options to choose from - the phrase 'something for everyone, is an understatement!

Indoor climbing centres offer the challenges of climbing that you'll find on natural outdoor structures; simply indoors. It's a fun way to stay fit, you will quickly begin to develop arm, back, finger, and core strength as a result of the many reaches and holds that are repeated through the completion of the climb.

To come along, you will need to register via the event page, and to climb you will need to pay an entry fee directly to the centre when you arrive. For entry fee prices visit:

For your first time climbing with us, especially if you are new to climbing and need a guided session, please contact the event leader in advance to let him know what your skills and experience are, or if you will need some help to learn the basics.

Do I need a guided session?

If you can answer Yes to the following three questions:

1. Can you tie the correct knots (double figure of 8 and stopper knot)?

2. Can you fit a harness correctly?

3. Can you belay correctly?

Then you do not need a guided session from the event leader.

If you answer No to any of the questions then don't worry this means you will need a guided session from the event leader, who will happily take you through everything you need to know to climb safely.

Please note, guided sessions may only be available on the events marked 'Beginners Welcome' this is purely to ensure that our volunteer leaders also get time to climb themselves. 

It is important that all members sign up through the event page to make sure the event leader has all necessary information they need to ensure they can participate in a safe & happy way. 

Participation statement:

Please note that every person participating should be aware of (and accept) that those members perceived as ‘in charge’ or leading the event are not necessarily qualified, do not need to be qualified, and are not regarded by OutdoorLads, or themselves as ‘technical experts’ but are amateur climbers with some experience and who are happy to impart their knowledge. Any advice given should be considered with this in mind by the recipient.
