News - October 2008


We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you, our wonderful customers, for your continued patience and support over what have been an exceptionally difficult time.


From September 2nd we have revised COVID restrictions. 


Face Coverings:

We encourage and support customers to wear masks around the centre but it is not compulsory anymore to wear them.

The reception team will not obliged to wear a mask anymore but the screen will still be in place around the reception area.

Coaches will still have to wear masks on coached sessions as well as groups with participants aged 9 and above


Centre capacities:

With the removal of the very specific capacities from government guidance we will be cautiously increasing our centre capacities by 10%

The Climbing Works – 105 to 116 (sign out still required)

The Mini Works – 45 to 50 (slot bookings)

Unit E – 45 to 50


Social distancing:

The government guidance from 19th July means that there are no legal limits on indoor group size, but we still strongly encourage you to socially distance (2m where possible!) from people you don’t have frequent contact with anyway.

It is important that you continue to respect the space of anyone you have not mutually agreed that you are happy to be closer to or do not know.



We will continue to manage these risks and monitor them closely. In the event of significant new evidence and government announcements we will revise these new policies and not hesitate to put restrictions back in place.

19 Oct 2008 New Circuit Topo available to download

With the new Green Circuit now finished we have 10 colour circuits in the main area of The Climbing Works giving you roughly 400 problems to go climb. Not to mention the 30 or so on the Berghaus Competition wall or the Training Board.

The circuits start at around Font 2 and go up to Font 7c meaning there is something for everyone to climb no matter what level you are. If you've never been before you can check out the topo available to download below to get an idea of the range. If you're a regular, you might want to print it off to see how many you can tick (in the next week?, month? session?).
