Can I bring friends to the climbing wall at the University of Bolton?

If you bring a friend, they will also need to register as a beginner climber at the Sports Centre reception. External climbers will be required to pay for an instructed session. Access to climbing at the university is designed to be straightforward but always SAFE.

We warmly welcome you to use our fantastic 50ft indoor climbing wall. We have climbing sessions each week on Thursday evenings and Friday afternoons. We also have a climbing club that you could join. 

For more information about our activities, please visit our sport and wellness page. Alternatively, alternatively you can contact us on 01204 903 172 or by emailing

Sport is a great way to engage with new friends.
