    • Located in the heart of the Forum in Bayonne, The Roof is the very first climbing gym in the North Basque Country. More than a simple gym, the Maison de l'escalade is, like a trinquet, a plural place where you can practice your favorite sporting activity, eat, have a drink, attend cultural or sporting events, and above all, enjoy a moment of conviviality.

      On the sport side, The Roof team will introduce you to bouldering. This discipline is practiced on walls limited in height (4.5m at the highest) without rope or harness, safety being ensured by thick landing mats. Fun, friendly and easy to learn, bouldering is made for everyone, from beginners to experienced climbers (from the age of 2).

      In terms of delicacies, Chef Lili cooks you up for lunch every day (and in the evening by reservation) and also makes the pastries that adorn the window of sweets. At the climbing house we cook only with fresh and local products, from organic farming when possible, with the aim of feasting on a simple, healthy and full of love cuisine.

      On the cultural side, the Maison de l'escalade hosts exhibitions, organizes openings, conferences as well as numerous events combining sport and festive moments...

      Find all the news of the Maison de l'escalade in the events tab, on its website and Facebook page.

    Stopped in for a climb on a rainy day while staying in Biarritz. The staff were super friendly - the setting is super high quality, from technical slabs to more compy dynamic stuff, and generally quite stiff for the stated grades (not a bad thing!) Recommended!

    Great Place for bouldering. The introduction of the place was really good and the great coffee afterwards was a real treat.
