An imitation cavern heaving with psychedelic cliff faces, The Reach climbing centre poses a sky high challenge for beginners learning the ropes. The centre scales the banks of the Thames with gravity defying overhangs and ceiling-scraping scrambles, all an easy hike from the Woolwich Dockyard railway station and the big smoke. Serving up one-to-one instruction, teambuilding exercises for school groups, or simply a training ground for sticky-footed athletes, the area keeps everything light hearted with rainbow hues.
90 Minute Taster
A 90 minute taster session offers curious clamberers a taste of the great indoors, with a brief introduction to equipment and techniques allowing rookies to test their head for heights and their taste for the mountains.
Six Hour Class
The six hour class gets beginners into the trekking swing, with in-depth exploration of the harnesses, ropes, and high flying footwork. Learning in two smaller three hour peaks, guests can join groups of up to nine, and get set to scale personal barriers and nature’s challenges.
Taster sessions (Fri 7.30pm-9pm; Sat 11am-12.30pm)
Beginners’ classes (Sat and Sun 10.30am-1.30pm; Tue and Thu from 6.30pm-9.30pm)

It's a little out of the way but worth the trip. They are never overly busy so you won't have to queue to climb a route. The bouldering section is a little small but they will be opening a new bouldering section very soon which will double the bouldering space. All the climbing and bouldering routes are reset regularly so there will always be a new route to challenge you. The climbing wall is great for groups. I have taken my Explorer Scout unit down there a few times and they always have a great time.

I can recommend it. Variety of walls, something for everyone. You can get good advice. Well organized courses for beginners for very good price.
