to the Chains
Roped climbs rely more on stamina and tenacity over a longer duration as opposed to bouldering where the routes are shorter but tend to be more physical. They are also more suited to those who do not want to ‘drop and roll’ and/or would prefer the protection of a rope and harness when descending back to earth.
At The Ledge we have 50+ set climbs on our top-rope (where the rope is threaded at the top of the wall to limit fall length) and lead walls (where you are at the ‘sharp end’ clipping into fixed bolt protection as you progress).
CLIMBING WITH AUTOBELAYS
No partner? No worries – we’ve got autobelays!
Basically autobelays function as a virtual climbing partner so you can climb safely on your own. The autobelay device is attached to the top of the route, takes in security tape attached to your harness as you climb, and lowers you slowly and safely back to the ground when you’ve sent your project (or come off half way up!).
Our autobelays are ideal for stamina fests and focused folks who are struggling to find a reliable climbing partner!

Using our roped walls may require climbers to take a simple competency test on their first visit.
Please Note: to use our autobelays for the first time, you will need to take an autobelay induction so we can be sure that you understand the implications of unsupervised use. Please enquire at reception and we’ll get you booked in.
Different rules apply for 14-17 yrs and Under 14s.
