12 Days of Climbing this Christmas

Boulder Hut is the new indoor climbing experience which landed in Ellesmere Port, just off junction 7 of the M53, this summer. It houses over 1,000sqm of bouldering, which is climbing without ropes over crash mats, and has something for the whole family. There is a play room for toddlers, complete with its own climbing wall and a kids’ climbing wall with over 30 different routes and a slide. Along with adults, children over 11 years old can use the main walls which are designed for novices up to elite climbers (also with a slide!).

Climbing has a whole host of benefits, not just because it is an excellent all over body workout, but because it is mentally stimulating, as you must solve the puzzle of how to get up the routes (which are known as problems). It is also a social activity and there is a vegetarian and vegan café serving tasty meals and excellent coffee and cake, to rave reviews. Boulder Hut has everything needed to keep the whole family entertained, but if you’re looking for something more, they offer kids classes, adult improver courses and have three birthday party packages to choose from to suit all ages and budgets.

As a Christmas treat, Boulder Hut has an unlimited climbing pass available for kids to enjoy - £16 for 12 days over the holidays, so that they can be active whatever the weather, and somewhere where parents can join in or chill out too. Visit boulderhut.com/12days for information.
