Where ever and whenever
you climb always remember:
"The BMC recognises
that climbing, hill
walking and mountaineering are activities
with a danger of personal injury or death.
Participants in these activities should be aware
of and accept these risks and be responsible
for their own actions and involvement.
Nav POI Directory for Uk Climbing Walls
Based on the BMC
Climbing Wall Directory 2012, with additions from UK Climbing
Website and a lot of searching on google maps. Where known, I've
tried to indicate the car park near the entrance rather than rely
on just the post code. Most Centres have a phone number that should
work with a Bluetooth set, if you get stuck phone them not me.
Obviously there are no phone numbers for the Artificial Climbing
Boulders in parks.
The Climbing Wall Sat Nav POI directory has approximately 350
walls (I may have included the same wall twice as it is known
as different names and includes England, Wales, Scotland, and
Ireland. All have some public access, though some may require
a phone call to either check for opening times or to book. There
just isn't enough space to include size and type of climbing facility.
Neither can it include opening times, websites, prices and, sorry
Don, but neither can it include the manufacturer. The directory
is a bit light on walls in Northern and Southern Ireland. Either
someone needs to build more climbing wall there or I need help

the link and save as. Unzip the file; a Readme text file with
instructions and two Climbing Wall files, the data file and a
simple BMP image file. Simply put these two files into the folder
that contains your map data.
It is not a definitive
list.- Road signs and traffic rules always take precedent, and
don't operate it while driving
If you find any
errors, discrepancies or better parking points, if I've missed
a wall please let me know and I'll correct it when I can.
