5 stars is an understatement. Incredibly committed and friendly staff and an incredible climbing gym. Always made to feel welcome. Grateful to have the shack in the city I live in.


Absolutely amazing birthday party for my 7 year old. We were all so well looked after and all the kids had a brilliant time. Hands down the best party my son’s had. Thanks so much!


This is a great climbing gym. Nice diversity in holds, big area, really clean and taking covid very seriously… routes feel exactly how they should with a nice gradual difficulty curve which makes many routes feel like a good challenge rather than completely impossible if you’re a novice like myself. Which lends itself to progression. They’re obviously committed to keeping the fun in climbing, humerous posters and signage everywhere. Lots of places to put your bag. Very friendly chilled, slightly bohemian atmosphere to the cafe with a nice variety of food and drink. On top of all of this there’s a dinosaur hold you can touch for good luck. I mean – where else do you get dinosaur power?


Great place, great climbing, lovely staff, wonderful atmosphere, accepting community. All round great gem in Southampton.


Awesome little gym, came down for a competition and the atmosphere was amazing. Started with food from the cafe, which was brilliant, and I was served by a lovely member of staff. The comp wall is good – good technical setting and a great choice of holds. The training/warmup area is also cool, with a great choice of wood boards to climb on, and also a lot of gear to use. The rest of the centre is cool as well, especially the little kids area and the football table :). Brilliant gym, would recommend!


Super friendly bouldering wall with enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff ready to encourage your next grade push or make you a decent cup of coffee while you watch someone else nailing it  Cheers Boulder Shack 👍


Brilliant place to go bouldering, best one I’ve been to, the drinks are amazing, friendly staff, and loads of different levels of climbing so if you’ve never been bouldering before it’s a great place to try.


Friendly and helpful staff, and tonnes of routes for every skill level. I love climbing here whenever I’m in town!


Has parking, a nice cafe and once you’ve paid you can climb as long as you like!! Really friendly staff AND they’re dog friendly as well.

Honestly such a blessed place, wish I could give it a higher rating. Good food, great drinks and extremely friendly staff and good routes. Love the new stuff they’ve added. Me and my slimes all love going here.
