Celebrating 25 Years of Awesome Walls: A Heartfelt Thank You

Over the last 25 years of Awesome Walls, I’ve been very lucky to do what I love. I was happy and humbled by the warm, welcoming presence that I received at Awesome Walls Liverpool’s 25th anniversary celebration. This milestone is not just a testament to the longevity of our climbing centres but also to the incredible community that has grown around them. I am grateful for every person who has made this journey possible.

For every customer that climbs at my centres. For the parents and carers that bring the young ones. For every staff member who proudly wears the uniform. For every compliment that comes my way. For you guys who put the ‘awe’ in awesome. For my wife, Stephne, who puts up with me and my relentless pursuit of awesomeness!

None of this would be possible without your help. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Our 25th anniversary event was more than a celebration; it was a chance to reflect on the incredible journey we’ve had and the amazing people who have supported us along the way. I am deeply appreciative of the climbers, staff, and supporters who have been with us through thick and thin. Your passion and dedication have been the driving force behind our success.

Over the years, Awesome Walls has grown from a single centre to a network of premier climbing facilities across the UK and Ireland. Each location has its unique charm, but all share the same core values of community, inclusivity, and excellence. We’ve hosted countless competitions, workshops, and events that have brought climbers of all ages and abilities together. Watching young climbers develop their skills and confidence has been particularly rewarding.

On this special day, we also supported a cause close to our hearts: Climbers Against Cancer (CAC). If you missed the event but would still like to contribute, please consider making a donation to support this worthy cause. The climbing community has always been about more than just the sport; it’s about coming together to make a positive impact.

Thank you once again for being part of the Awesome Walls family. Here’s to many more years of climbing, community, and awesomeness!

With gratitude,

Dave Douglas
