About us 
We're working to make climbing accessible for all. As London's original climbing wall, we've been bringing climbers together since the late eighties. We are independent and not-for-profit, striving to remain authentic and a force for good. 

Mile End Climbing Wall is housed inside and old pipe engineering works, located within Mile End Park and sitting right next to Regent’s Canal. There is extensive bouldering at all levels – including the legendary Board Room, Monkey House and Mile End Comp Wall – as well as top-roping, autobelays and lead climbing. 

We cater for the complete novice through to the seasoned professional offering a range of courses on and off site. The centre has hosted many climbing events over the years, including Blokfest, Tour Du Bloc, and Team GB training sessions to name just a few. We recently launched She Climbs, featuring an all-female route setting team – one of the first events of its kind. 

This is an amazing time to join, with exciting projects such as the installation of our new training area, and a renewed focus on our values  – promoting the benefits of climbing and removing barriers to participation.

Much of our work is with children and adults at risk of abuse and as such we follow rigorous child protection policies and procedures in our recruitment process.
