By climbing at our centre, our customers help us to offer opportunities for youth groups, vulnerable young people, groups with special educational needs, and more.We opened to the public in the late eighties and are housed inside an old pipe engineering works which is located within Mile End Park, a five-minute walk from Mile End Tube Station. It has grown to the current size, sporting approx. 16,000 sq. ft (1500 sq. m) of climbing surface.
