Birkenhead Pool and Leisure Centre

Rock climbing

Give rock climbing a go – it’s a whole lot of fun! With a variety of walls and terrains at Birkenhead Pool and Leisure Centre, all ages can get involved.

Bring your family and friends in and check out our bouldering area, 5m vertical top rope, 8m vertical and overhang top rope and, of course, the giant 216 sq.m lead climbing wall with 6m overhang, as well as the 8m, 13 line addition.

New to climbing? All ages, levels and abilities are welcome, and we won’t send you anywhere near the wall without making sure you know what to do first, and that you’re completely comfortable. Our awesome instructors love talking all things climbing, so do them a favour – come down and give them someone to talk to!


While there’s no need to book during standard opening hours we do take group bookings during these times – please note that this doesn’t grant exclusive use of the walls.

Birthday parties

Give the kids a birthday party they’ll never expect! An extreme climbing party will be the talk of the school – it’s the perfect, action-packed way to celebrate. Birthday party bookings give you two hours of climbing wall entry, harness hire and an exclusive climbing brief with one of our trained instructors!


Bookings essential – book now!
