Indoor Rock Climbing

Climb Midhurst is situated at Midhurst Rother College but is managed by The Sports Centre at Chichester College.

Rock Climbing walls are a great way of keeping fit and having fun at the same time.

All experienced climbers who know how to use a harness correctly, "tie-on" correctly and "belay" in a safe manner may attend any of our public sessions, following a short assessment by our in-house instructor.

Assessed climbers can then supervise up to two novice climbers.
