The Indy climbing wall is based in the famous village of Llanffair PG, which is home to the longest name for a village in Britain. It is set in a beautiful region on the banks of the Menai Straits on Anglesey.
(llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch) The Indy Climbing wall is a fantastic venue for the whole family it boasts a fantastic array climbing styles for all ages.
There are bouldering problems, lead wall climbing and top ropes with grades varying from 4A / 7C. It is owned and run by a great chap BY the name of John Ratliff who gives it a very nice warm family feel. He or his team of amazing climbers are always on hand to give help and advice instruction & tuition.
It is a very humble place with a lot of excellent climbers there, but don’t let that put you off! Even though you climbing with some of the highest caliber young Welsh talent yet you wouldn’t know it. That’s what we like that about it.
I’ve been going out to five years now and you never feel out of place, you always get encouraged no matter what your ability, just show up with some enthusiasm and a smile and you’ll get on fine.
The rates are very reasonable for what you get there, which we believe is great value. You can stay as long as you want and we often been there for marathon session until they are closing the place down late at night. Your never rushed or given a time limit.
Parking is really really good and there is an on-site shop so if you need to get any other accessories there is always someone there on on hand to sort you out.
The safety is fantastic there are mats everywhere and there are always people around to spot each other. The bouldering there is of a very high standard they have great problems to solve with some very tricky ones and some very attainable for even the most modest of abilities. That’s one thing you can rely on there, is a great selection of climbing problems to solve. John and his team pride themselves on this and it really shines through.
Its always quite warm there unlike some other climbing walls I have been to where your wearing six layers and still shivering!
It is a great place to take the family there and spend an afternoon. Refreshments and warm drinks are available and the staff are super friendly. They have a great area to chill in and read climbing magazines in between your routes, other than that its just a great atmosphere to hang out in with like minded people. We spent many many autumn and winter nights they’re climbing especially when its rainy (265 days of the year! joke) when you can’t get out on the rock!
One thing that is to note is that it’s it is owned and run by a very good climbers and it is run for climbers and that has a real strong feel about the place.John is obviously very passionate about his work / play there!
They also have a climbing competitions on some weekends a climbing league where they put on different competitions for that specifically through the year for the people who are after a little competitive climbing. People can just turn up on on the weekend and have a go. Its good fun and not taken that seriously and that’s why we really like it there. We think that you will to enjoy a lot!
