The Arch opened its first bouldering wall in 2008 next to London Bridge station, followed by the new and improved The Biscuit Factory in March 2012. The Biscuit Factory (located in an old biscuit factory in Bermondsey) is set to be a game changer on the London climbing scene. With over 11,000 square feet of bouldering and dozens of circuits offering hundreds of climbs, it is one of the biggest climbing facilities in the UK and suitable for all climbing abilities. Their biggest attraction is the Moon Board, a 55 degree circuit training board for strength and endurance training. The venue also offers a cafe and cinema room for you to relax and a large area suitable for stretching and yoga pre and post climb.

About the Taster
This introductory taster will teach you the basics of bouldering (rock climbing without ropes and harnesses) on one of the UK's biggest indoor climbing facilities with all the equipment included. You will spend an hour with an experienced instructor who will teach you all the necessary safety precautions, how to warm up, descend and jump from the wall and, of course, some key climbing techniques. Don't be put off by the lack of harnesses as there are crash pads at the bottom of every wall to cushion your fall. You're then free to explore the over 11,000 square feet of wall and circuits. The course includes shoe hire and other equipment and the average class size is just 4 to 8 people.

It’s a fun sport giving you a full-body work out in a sociable environment. What's more, for those of you who fancy yourselves as budding climbers following the session, you'll receive an induction pack with a ½ price voucher for your first month of membership to the wall.
