Kents premier indoor Climbing centre since 2001
In the Beginning
Revolution Climbing Centre has been open since December 2001 and has been growing in size and popularity ever since. We have now utilized all our space and although mainly a bouldering centre we do offer top rope, lead climbing, auto belaying and abseiling. Our centre offers a great climbing experience for all abilities and ages, our instructors are knowledgeable and passionate and we cater for individuals, groups, parties and school visits.
Since the Skatepark and Climbing Centre was first designed, there have been many changes to improve it and keep it exciting. The climbing centre is constantly changing its routes and adding new holds to keep each visit fresh and exciting.
Whats here now
Revolution Climbing Centre is Kent’s premiere climbing venue catering for climbers of all levels from beginner to expert. The walls are extremely diverse with many different climbing surfaces and textures. All routes are changed regularly, creating different climbs every visit and graded to national standards. Our trained, friendly instructors are on hand to help the climber have a fun time or to teach to the level of “competent climber”. The centre is ideal for individuals, groups, parties and team building exercises. Lessons can be arranged with our friendly instructors as well as tasters sessions if you just fancy having a go. All equipment is available for hire from our climbing shop which also stocks a wide range of climbing equipment for both indoors and out. Check out the shop on our website for an idea of what we stock.
Our Walls Today
Our Rock Replica wall is a section of resin panels which have been moulded directly from a real rock surface. It gives the climber the feeling of climbing in a natural environment. It also has the added benefit of removable climbing holds on it so as to create a different climb by replacing holds. There are many so many small features on the wall ideal for the technical climber.
Our resin panel wall is part of our arch but is suitable for bouldering as well as rope climbing. It is an inclined wall with limited hold conflagrations making it harder than it looks.
The overhang section is also part of our arch so is used for bouldering and ropes although most will boulder the difficult 90 degree angle and the serious incline.
Our jigsaw themed cave section has something for everyone, with plenty of flat walls fully loaded with loads of different easy to follow climbing holds such as letters and numbers. As you work your way around the room there are various different shapes and volumes to navigate around. The whole cave section is covered with a cloud and sky ceiling littered with holds and with a stalactite centrepiece .
Flat Walled Section
Does what is says on the tin, this area is mainly a flat walled section, with areas of friction paint, plywood features and various volumes. Once again it has loads of holds covering the walls with many different routes planned out in the chaos.
The centrepiece of the whole climbing centre is the main arch, although the lower sections are suitable for bouldering the top sections are purely for competent climbers as to cross the arch you need to be proficient in lead climbing and also have a partner who is too.
The 9 Meter Roped Wall
Our highest wall is just over 9 meters and can be used for top rope and lead climbing, we have 2 anchor points for top roping and lots of different holds from beginner to advanced up each climb. We also have an auto belay device on the wall so individuals can climb even if they do not have a partner to pair with. This wall also holds our abseil tower used for tasters and groups.
The curved overhang
This section of wall has a curved overhang section along with additional resin panels. Plans are in progress to upgrade this section so keep your eyes peeled for changes soon
Our Climbing shop carries all the essentials needed for climbing. We hold a nice range of climbing shoes from kids to adult, and always have plenty of chalk bags to choose from with chalk and finger tape as every climbers essential kit. If you are taking climbing to the next level then we stock harnesses, ropes, karibinas and belay devices too.
