Update for Climbers

Due to the regulations in place for our school courses and family courses, we are still not able to open during the day time. Bowles is open for evening climbing from 5.30pm to 9pm. The cost is £5 (under 16s £4) by card tap only. Expired membership cards will be extended by 3 months. We are not able to sell new memberships at the moment.

Social distancing and handwashing must be observed.

No climbing on or past the Chalet slab area in order to protect the residents at Bowles.

Anyone not observing the rules will be asked to leave.

Rock climbing

Bowles is one of the best rock climbing venues in the South East, with its south-facing, quick drying sandstone and excellent access. Bowles Rocks are currently open for climbers from 5pm until dark every weekday, with other groups onsite in the daytime. The rocks are currently open all day Saturday and Sunday.
