The latest news on routes and problems
Latest Update -Wednesday 12th October 17
Iain made it in yesterday and spent the day setting long ropes over 5 lower offs putting 3 on each line. We had chance to climb them today while we moved the ropes around. The ropes have be moved to allow for top roping and lead climbing different routes from last week. There as 6 lines that have no top ropes or extenders insitu so bring your own rope and clips for that lead climb experience.
Back to Iains work, what a great set! Lines 23, 32, 34, 45, 53 were stripped with 15 new routes being added with grades from 3 – 8a+. The 8a+ was a customer request as they have been climbing the 8a.
