About

Tollymore National Outdoor Centre is Sport Northern Ireland's National Outdoor Centre. It offers a range of one day and weekend courses in rock climbing skills, learning to lead and multi pitch climbing, Canadian canoeing, kayaking and sea kayaking, mountain biking, orienteering and coasteering. Courses can be organised for groups of 4 or more. We provide training at all levels, from introductory 'GO' type events, through to instructor and coach training and assessment. We are the sole provider of all high level mountaineering, rockclimbing, hillwalking and canoesport leader, instructor and coach training and assessment courses in Northern Ireland.

Hotrock Climbing Wall is situated at Tollymore National Outdoor Centre. At Hotrock there is a lead wall and a bouldering area. The lead wall is 9.5m high and 11m wide; the bouldering wall is 4.5m high and 10m wide. A campus board has been added to the bouldering area.

The climbing surfaces are made from a textured fibreglass medium with rock features. A range of bolt-on holds are also in use. The lead wall has over 40 routes ranging from easier slab lines to more technical and strenuous routes through the grades.
The bouldering area allows individuals to climb without a rope and offers a wide range of technical problems with crash matting to soften the impact of falls. The wall is designed to encourage maximum participation for all abilities.

One day climbing wall sessions are available at Hotrock Climbing Wall (tel +44(0)28 4372 5354)
