the centre

Stronghold: Tottenham Hale is back bigger and better than before. We’ve moved from our original site on Ashley Road to our new location at the Archives within High Cross Centre. We have brought the best of our old centre (quite literally – read more below for this) and added so much more.

 A facility that has built on our years of experience and encompass the very best of the London bouldering scene.

If you’ve never climbed before then make sure to read everything you need to know at our First Visit page by clicking below.


If you’ve climbed before but never been to a Stronghold Climbing Centre (or haven’t been to our Tottenham Hale centre post Covid lockdown) then you need to fill in an Acknowledgement of Risk form before you can climb. This form explains everything you need to know before bouldering here and must be filled in correctly before you will be allowed to climb.

If you are Under-18 then visit our Kids & Families page here for more information on how you can climb at London Fields.

Looking for some new climbing shoes?
This Thursday we have Tenaya at our Tottenham Hale Stronghold centre with a large range of shoes to try on. It was a huge success at our London Fields chance so don't miss out the chance to try on and climb in a wide range of Tenaya shoes.

We will also have Tenaya experts on hand to help you find the right shoe for your foot no matter what grade you climb. Whether it is your first pair of climbing shoes or your N+1 pair, this is a great time to try on a range of shoes for FREE.

You can also save 20% off RRP of any Tenaya shoe bought at Stronghold on these demo evenings. Find the right shoe for you, pre-purchase on the night and Tenaya will ship the shoe to us ASAP. We will then let you know when the shoe arrives to pickup.

Thursday 14th Oct: Tottenham Hale 5pm onwards.
