What is Top Rock?

Top Rock is a clip and climb indoor adventure that’s now available at Fareham Leisure Centre. Combing fun, thrills and convenience in equal measure, the key thing that sets it apart from other climbing experiences is the ease with which it can be enjoyed.

What are the Benefits of Top Rock?

As well as the fun and the thrills you get from climbing all the 20 routes available at Fareham Leisure Centre, there are a number of other reasons why you should give Top Rock climbing a go.

There’s the ease, for starters. You just get clipped on to the auto-belay, start climbing and, once you get to the top (or as high as you dare) just abseil back down. Climbing is also a fantastic whole-body workout, building strength all over your body, but especially in your core, legs and arms and is fantastic for your cardiovascular fitness too.

Who can Enjoy Top Rock Climbing?

Thankfully, just about everyone can tackle the Top Rock challenges. As long as you’re aged four plus and weight less than 150kg, then you’re free to enjoy climbing. Just clip on, and get climbing! It must be noted, however, that all climbers aged under 16 must have an adult with them at all times.

We’ll also need you to wear loose, comfortable clothing, with comfy, closed-toe shoes with plenty of grip on them such as trainers. If you’ve got long hair, then we’ll need you to tie it back, while head scarves need to be secured and no jewellery can be worn while you’re climbing, unfortunately.

The Top Rock facilities are available for private hire. Please get in contact with the centre for more information.

How Long do Sessions Last?

Each session lasts 55 minutes, with an extra five minutes allocated to put on and remove your harness. We advise you arrive around half an hour before your slot time for the safety briefing and harness fitting. Once that’s done, you can enjoy 55 minutes of uninterrupted climbing.
