We did it
On 2nd November 2019 we successfully raised £25,130 with 240 supporters in 61 days

We are building a new CLIMBING Centre. We are striving to create an amazing space for all; to learn the basics or train for the Olympics.

New stretch target

*We are now trading as The Tide Climbing Centre – See our updates for more information*

We have smashed our target and we could not be more excited to see the community come together in this way. 

Since there has been so much interest we will be stretching our target to £25,000! 

If we can raise this additional money, we can include more automatic belay devices in the centre. This will allow up to 12 people to be using the devices. These will arrest or stop any falling occurring in a controlled manner. 

These are great items of climbing equipment but they are outrageously expensive, each one will cost upwards of £2000 to be installed. Currently we can't afford to outfit your centre with these devices but with your continued assistance we can create a one stop shop for every type of climbing!

Cornwall is awesome, but there seems to be something missing. An indoor climbing centre!


This is why we want to create you, the biggest indoor climbing centre in the area. 

We need to raise an extra £15,000 to finish our build, which includes the build of our 7.5 metre roped walls. This will help make The Prow accessible for everyone, creating an inclusive social community for all of Cornwall.

The Prow climbing centre finished look.

 We are building a social space for everyone and their dog to get involved with, we want to make this an inclusive space for all abilities to try climbing. Oh! and of course try our handmade pizzas! Our centre will offer an adventure to everyone of all ages! 

"Building a social alternative to the treadmill and weights that the whole family can enjoy together" Hugh Rycroft, Investor.

If you help us reach our target The Prow will have top ropes for everyone to learn how to climb and take their knowledge in to the great outdoors.

We will also be providing employment opportunities for the community of Cornwall, as well as using local and economical products to supply our centre.

The Prow Membership options

Here’s a sneak peek at our limited-edition T-shirt design, free with any membership pledge!

"Opening a facility like this in the heart of North Cornwall, will make such a difference in our community. It will give our young adults a place to have fun and socialise." Sue Rodger, Newquay

The roped wall currently but it will look awesome with your help!


We will take every penny raised and put it directly towards increasing the offering of activities including our ropes and auto belay sections. 

Auto belays, live bands, cafe and climbing

"I'm so stocked to have a climbing centre in Cornwall, I have missed it so much since moving from London. The Prow looks epic" Mark Wright, St Columb.



Climbing has three main disciplines that have now been included in the 2020 Olympics. These are: bouldering, speed climbing and lead climbing The Prow will include majority of its space to bouldering which is the most inclusive and rapidly growing of all the three disciplines.

We are in a unique location surrounded by coastal walks, top surfing spots and plenty of outdoor climbing, but sometimes the weather prevents us from having fun. We want to bring the sport of indoor climbing to Cornwall. 

Indoor climbing is growing at a staggering rate and there are many reasons for this; it bridges social exclusion, indoor climbing is an all year-round sport, climbing promotes physical and mental wellbeing, people of all ages and abilities can get involved. We want to give children and adults a place to learn, grow and have fun.

“The brilliant thing about our sport is that in places like this, the very beginner climbs on the same wall as an international, everyone in the same space together,” - GB climber Shauna Coxsey.

This is an informative video from a different climbing centre, we hope to be a NICAS accredited centre.

We need your help to give the centre a section dedicated to top rope/lead climbing. Roped climbing is essential to enable us to deliver educational sessions to schools, colleges, universities and all groups of all abilities. 

Directors, Sam Rearden and Sophie Reynard.

Head of Employee Welfare, Benji the dog.

We have visited, built, and worked in climbing facilities and centres all over the world and distilled our favourite parts from each to create The Prow Climbing Centre. We are putting all we have into The Tide as we know Cornwall needs it and will love it, we want to offer you the chance to become a part of this journey with us. 

We have designed our business model to ensure that we put back into the community, we have a great awareness for our environment and wish to make sure we use sustainable products and services. We hope this will reduce our environmental impact and inspire others to do the same.

We are a very passionate and enthusiastic team; we believe in taking on challenges and surpassing our expectations. We have built well rounded values in to The Prow and we hope our team will continue to grow and flourish.

For your pledge we are offering you once in a lifetime discounted rewards, only available here on our crowdfunding campaign.

Not only will you be supporting our project but also grabbing yourself or a friend a bargain.

Is it your child’s birthday soon? Pre-book their birthday with us, they will enjoy 1.5 hours of climbing with 8 of their closest pals, this even includes handmade pizza and drinks! For a bargain price of £150 usual price £180+.

When are you hoping to open?

We have experienced a few delays, but we are aiming to open mid November 2019

Are there any age limits for climbing? 

The minimum age that we can cater for at The Tide is four years old, there is no upper limit and we see climbers as young as 68 years old! Climbing is incredibly safe when conducted under controlled conditions.

Will there be any activities for parents whilst our children are having fun?

Yes! You can either get involved yourself and climb with your child or join in on one of our fitness classes. If you prefer a slightly more relaxed vibe you can simply relax in our café.

Where are you based?

We are located just off the A39 in between Padstow, Newquay and Wadebridge. Click here for google maps.

Is there parking nearby? 

We may be the only climbing gym in the country to have adequate free parking! That being said, we encourage environmentally friendly transport options like cycling and running; there is the offer of a free cup of tea to anyone who arrives under their own power.

Can everyone get involved?

In short, YES! 

We encourage absolutely everyone to come and join in, climbing is used by Help for Heroes for rehabilitation. It is a stimulating environment for individuals suffering from conditions such as Autism and Asperger’s syndrome. 

We can change or turn off music, we can recommend quiet periods, we can offer one on one tuition. Our core values incorporate having everyone involved.

Pledge now for your reward and let's create the best climbing centre in Cornwall

We are going for broke in our 'all or nothing' campaign without your support Cornwall will miss out on this awesome opportunity! but it also means if we don't make our target, you'll get a full refund!
