News - Mon 15th Dec 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.
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
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
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.
The Climbing Works Team
Friday night and R2 of the Berghaus Bouldering League saw yet another close competition with the Men's only being decided by 1 point. 25 problems and a big crowd meant it was a great night with alot of big efforts and big falls. Alot of the early excitement and eyes of many competitors were focused on the bonus special problem, that being unclimbed in the 1st round, now had a cash prize of £150 attached to it. This time Percy set an even longer volumes only problem with his favourite type of hold thrown in...a double jam on a roof.
Dave Barrans on the bonus cash problem
Across from Manchester, Dave Barrans came looking exclusively for the cash problem and after a few warm ups he went to work figuring out the beta. A fine effort took him to the penultimate hold but a rookie mistake of not taking a chalk bag cost him dear as he was dispatched off the sloping feature. After a long rest and another look at the finishing moves he set off again, sans chalkbag, and dispatched the final moves with aplomb. A fine effort and well worth the £150.
In the Mens, visiting Aussie John Merz took top spot (stopping early as he has a bad wrist) while Leah Crane continued on her form from R1 taking top spot in the Womens. Full results from R2 are available here>>
