Kirklees may not have a large number of indoor climbing facilities but there are loads within an hours drive, possibly the finest selection of indoor routes and bouldering in the country.
Indoor walls are a great way to learn technique and get strong in preparation and training for climbing outdoors. Most will run courses to teach you the basics and introduce you to other climbers.
Huddersfield's newest climbing wall. OK so it's not actually in Huddersfield, it's in Brighouse, but it's got a Huddersfield postcode.
A combination of leading, top rope and bouldering walls.
