Rock UK has reopened the Welsh Climbing
Centre in Trelewis. They offer memberships and many activities for
a range of ages and abilities.
Formerly the Welsh International Climbing Centre, it is built on
the site of the former Trelewis drift mine which closed in 1989.
The Taff Bargoed Development Trust then redeveloped the site into a
climbing centre in 1997 turning it into an international climbing
centre. The climbing walls are up to 18 metres high with over 180
climbing routes in the main climbing centre plus an additional
bouldering area. The centre also has a world class man-made caving
system with a waterfall inside it which has been re-opened in early
Rock UK has extensive expansion plans for the centre that will
include developing the land to accommodate exciting outdoor
adventure activities including an extended high ropes course, low
ropes and archery and developing the already substantial
residential accommodation. Off-site mountain biking, climbing and
walking will also be offered making use of the extensive natural
resources in and around the South Wales Valleys and the Brecon
Beacons. Rock UK also plans to run water based activities at the
Taff Bargoed Millenium Park which will include open canoeing,
kayaking and raft building.
