Gravity Climing Centre

Family Fun at Gravity this Easter & Easter opening times


Easter Egg Hunt...

BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL!

This Easter Gravity are having an Easter egg hunt with a difference! This easter-themed session is a great introduction to climbing for families or small groups of kids. It's perfect for complete beginners and for those who are relatively new to climbing- we will tailor the session (and the egg-hunt) to suit your ability.

Your instructor will get you fitted with climbing shoes & guide you through a warm up & some basics of climbing technique. Then you're off around the centre to see how many easter eggs you can find! Our instructor will keep an eye on you to make sure that you're climbing safely, but the emphasis of the session is very much on doing lots of climbing & having fun!

The session costs €60 for 2 adults & up to 3 kids. This includes your climbing shoe hire and instruction throughout the duration of the session. Contact us to check prices for smaller/ larger groups. Please call us on 017078585 to book!



Easter Opening Times...

Gravity will be open as normal throughout the Easter break. Please remember that if you are new to climbing, you will need to give us a call and book your session in advance!

All this week- uo to & including Good Friday 12.00 - 10.00pm
Easter Saturday & Sunday 10.00am - 8.00pm
Easter Monday- Fri 25th 12.00 - 10.00pm

Film Screening 'The last Great Climb' Sat 1st Feb

Gravity are delighted to announce that we willl be showing Alastair Lee's recent film 'The last Great Climb'at the centre on Saturday 1st February.

Described as 'an epic to end all mountain epics set in the stunning mountains of Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. The feature documentary follows top adventure climber Leo Houlding with his tried and tested team of Jason Pickles and Sean ‘Stanley’ Leary as they attempt to make the first ascent of the NE ridge of 'the master piece of the range'; the majestic Ulvetanna Peak (2931m). One of the most technically demanding climbs in one of the world’s harshest environments.The films tells the story of a climber's life long dream reach one of the world's most remote and difficult summits interweaved with the fascinating story of the mountain itself, which incredibly was only discovered in 1994. All set against the backdrop of the current age of mountaineering where few great lines remained unclimbed. Every inch of this daring journey is captured by multi-award winner Alastair Lee as we get to know the redoubtable and hilarious team. The team experience unprecedentedly good weather but eventually the harsh conditions begin to grind them down as inevitably the conditions become 'less favourable' whilst they attempt to defy the odds and complete the climb.
The last Great Climb promises to be quite simply one of the most spectacular and inspiring mountaineering films ever made.'

The Film won 'Best Climbing Film' at Banff 2013

As if this weren't enough, this screening will be introduced by none other than expedition member Jason Pickles!

Tickets priced €6/ €4concessions will be available at the door.

Watch the trailer or find out more about the film.
