The Arch Climbing Wall

The Arch Climbing Wall

The Arch Climbing Wall is a new wall climbing centre in Burnt Oak.


Bouldering is climbing without ropes above a soft landing. Indoor bouldering routes are identified by coloured holds, so the climber links movements between starting and finishing points, using only a certain colour of holds on the wall.

If you’ve never climbed before, you must take one hour Introduction Lesson at one of our centres to give you the best possible start. You will need to pre-book your Introduction Lesson, but afterwards you can visit for a climb whenever you want.

Arch North – our brand new centre at Burnt Oak opened in September 2015. A modern, glass fronted spacious building offering up to 11 000 square feet of climbing. Arch North is divided into 10 areas which feature mostly overhanging climbs. We have an extensive slab wall to compliment and a hugely popular horizontal roof and barrel wall feature. There are two large stand alone boulder islands and modern strength training facilities, 45 degree training board, gym rings, finger boards and gym apparatus. Arch North features exceptional modern facilities, changing rooms, showers, lockers, seating area, coffee bar and shop.

Children aged < 8 Years

Although we think that children are great, we find that not many under 8 year olds are able to fully enjoy an indoor bouldering centre, as the holds are set for adult arm spans & the wall angles are often physically challenging. There are several centres around London that you may find more suitable and enjoyable, such as Better Leisure centre (they have centres in Swiss Cottage and Hendon among others), Mile End, The Reach and Clip ‘n’ Climb Chelsea.

Children aged 8-12 Years

Please be aware we limit all general and private lessons to those aged 12+. For the children’s safety as well as other centre users’, we insist on a strict ratio of 1 supervisor to a maximum of 1 child under 12. The supervisor MUST: • Have previous bouldering experience (1 month in another centre, or at least 4 times at The Arch) • Be in the childrens’ company at all times whilst in the centre • Ensure the childrens’ safety and good behaviour around other centre users • Be aged 18+ If you like to supervise children and do not have previous bouldering experience, you will need to book an Introduction Lesson with us – please see the Lessons page on our website to book. Once you have completed the lesson and climbed an additional 3 times with us, you can supervise children at The Arch.
