Wall Climbing

Milldale has its own climbing wall, which can offer those new to the sport an exiting challenge.  The wall has 4 main routes that cab be made as easy or hard as you like by selecting holds or routes.  The wall can provide a great evening activity combined with a barbeque or camp fire in the summer months.  It is a great afternoons activity for a camp.  To book the wall contact the camp site bookings.  With a little bit of imagination it should  be possible for Scouts to gain the climbing activity badge.
