News - February 2009


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.

11 Feb 2009 Berghaus Bouldering League: Overall Standings

This Friday night (13/02) see's the fourth and final round of the Berghaus Bouldering League at The Climbing Works. We've added up all the scores from the previous rounds which you can view in pdf format below.


If you are handing in your scorecard please write your name so that's it legibe. For eg, Dave Barrens and Dave Barrands might be the same person, they may even be Dave Barrans but if you don't write your name clearly then we can't be at fault for not adding your scores up correctly (this could also be the reason why Dave B does so well at comps - he is actually 3 people!!!)

3 Feb 2009 Mina Cranking In Suisse

Word on the street is that mild mannered Works receptionist Mina has just dispatched her first Font 8a by climbing the problem Teamwork in Chironico. An awesome effort, and with other classic hard problems like Doigts Vert (7c+) in the bag on the same day, her extended climbing trip seems to be going from strength to strength. She's now in Font for a month so keep on cranking Mina!
