I've been a few times to get warmed up for ice-climbing abroad, but came recently with my son (27) who wanted to have a go. We booked 3 sessions through the day, with an hour off between each to get a rest. Great staff...friendly, informative, helpful. A very good facility for experienced climbers and beginners alike.

Visited at the weekend with my boyfriend, the staff were extremely friendly, they kitted us out with trousers, under layer, coat, gloves, hat, harness and boots! We went into the ice climbing area which was at -6 degrees. I found it extremely physically demanding as someone who struggles to lift their own body weight but the instructor was extremely patient,... More

My son and I really enjoyed this experience. Mat who did our induction and instruction was really good with us. We got so much more out of his advice instead of employing our normal techniques for bouldering. It was a great and really enjoyable experience as Mat knew how to keep us tested. We did 5 different types of climbs... More

In total my daughter did around... More

Easy to access location in the centre of Manchester, lots of parking nearby. Andy was our guide, very knowledgeable about all things climbing, really made us feel safe. Comfortable, warm equipment available to hire, all looked in good condition. The climbing was difficult at first, but with Andy's guidance it became easier fairly quickly. Discounts for return visits, and we... More

Many moons ago I was ken rock climber and winter hillwalker, but had not ventured to vertical ice. Today was excellent, Caz is a really good instructor, and clearly knows the sport. The hour was long enough for some one at my age, I am sure my arms will ache tomorrow, but am really keen to undertake another visit. Really... More

We visited for a friends birthday. It was physically challenging but great fun. Our instructor was great and we managed to reach the top. Bit expensive but worth it as it's different.

I got bought an "Ice Climbing Experience" as a present and booked in a session at Vertical Chill Manchester. The wall itself is in the back of a climbing/arctic gear store, it's separated off by glass and the store serves as a viewing area which is a really cool idea. I had an hour session which included equipment hire, my... More
