Old News

Wednesday 9th May Iain Moodie came in with his keen head on. He set panel 7 added 2 traverses on to the bouldering wall and 7 on the traverse wall. They are hard. Iain forgets how strong he is!

Monday 14th Steve McClure came in and set panels 1,2,5 & 6. Now although Steve is strong he did a good set for beginners as well as some hard numbers to challenge our better boulderers. He set 29 problems and we have tagged 22 of them

Next set

Thursday 7th June James Garden will be in setting Odd Short ropes. 10 lines, 30 routes.
