Take a look at what 'Summit Up' is going to offer

Date published: 02 November 2020


The first images of the interior of the brand new world class 'Summit Up' climbing centre in Oldham have been released.

‘Summit Up’ will be an awesome climbing centre and is set to be one of the largest and highest climbing facilities in the UK when it opens next summer.

It will feature up to 16m high climbing walls similar to those being used at the upcoming Olympic games. 

The new climbing centre, situated in Oldham adjacent to the Mahdlo Youth Zone, will include a massive Clip ‘n Climb, Lead and Bouldering area that cater to all ages and abilities. 

Designed by Entre-prises UK, the sole supplier of climbing walls for the 2021 Olympic games and the creators of Clip ‘n Climb, visitors will be able to experience world class walls climbed by the world’s best sport-climbers. 

All Clip ‘n Climb fan favourite challenges will be available in one building - the adrenalin pumping Leap of Faith, the signature Stairway to Heaven and a thrilling 10m Vertical Drop Slide. 

There will also be two ‘ValoClimb’ walls that use ‘world’s first’ interactive gaming technology, designed to boost fitness and offer a challenging alternative to traditional climbing. 

Children as young as two years old will be able to take part in special toddler sessions and standard sessions will be available for all ages and abilities, making the unique climbing centre suitable and fun for families. 

The Summit Up project is a community-focused collaborative effort between leading fun-climbing brand Clip ‘n Climb and The Stoller Charitable Trust.

Created by Sir Norman Stoller, the trust supports local community groups in Oldham and looks to improve the lives of young people in the area. 

The purpose-built climbing centre aims to provide a fun and safe space for the community to experience something new and push their limits, as well as simply offering an exciting new leisure activity for people in the area. 

It’s also expected to create 40 new jobs and attract 90,000 people, with all profits made being reinvested back into The Stoller Charitable Trust.
