About Us

Welcome to the Hangar

The Climbing Hangar started life in a Liverpool warehouse in 2011. Since then we’ve grown to become a national business with four sites, 70 employees and over 12,000 climbers coming through the doors every month (4000 of whom are Hangar members).

Our mission is simple – to help our customers lead happier, healthier and more connected lives through climbing.

We are passionate about climbing. But more importantly we’re passionate about the impact that a social, challenging, supportive, progressive and fun activity can have on people’s lives, regardless of ability, age or fitness. Everything about the Hangar experience is designed to be easy to access, inclusive and friendly so you feel right at home, right away.

We have ambitious plans for the next few years, and we’re inspired to keep getting better by the experiences and stories of the people who climb with us every day. So thank you to everyone who has been part of the Hangar story so far, and to everyone else, we look forward future adventures. #boldertogether

    Queer Representation in Climbing

    In the UK, February is LGBT+ History Month; and with the immense amount of time thrust into her hands by lockdown, Helen Astle from TCH Plymouth has been thinking about queer representation in British climbing. Is this community less integrated into the climbing industry than our American counterparts? And if so, what might we do to address this?
