News - February 2012


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.

20 Feb 2012 Results from Round 4 Evolv Bouldering League

This past Friday night was the last round of The Climbing Works Winter Bouldering League supported by Evolv.  

Another big round saw alot of people try the 25 set blocs with every one getting done (but not all flashed - this makes the routesetters happy).  Both the cash problems were completed by 2 people each (Ned & Dave on the Mens and Leah & Katy on the Womens).

This will be the last set of Berghaus competition wall problems before The CWIF on Sat 10th March so take this opportunity to get some training in before the big weekend.

We are finalising the overall scores and we will announce the winners later on today on the blog.

1 Feb 2012 We are a Learning Destination

The Climbing Works is now registered as a Learning Destination with The Children's University. This means all children who come to The Works can gain points for their Learning Passports.

What is a learning Passport?

The Learning Passport is a nationally recognised award scheme that encourages children and young people to take part in learning activities out of normal school hours.  Research by the University of Cambridge indicates that keeping a record and celebrating participation in these activities through the Children’s University has a big impact on success at school.

There are lots of fun and exciting activities taking place outside of normal school hours in different places across Sheffield where children and young people can collect learning credits. These credits will be added to the ones children collect in school to earn Children’s University Awards. To collect these credits, they need a Passport to Learning.


How can your child get a Learning Passport?

Great news!  During the month of February 2012 only, all Sheffield children and young people can get a Children's University Passport to Learning for Free (normally £2 each) by going along to a Learning Destination and taking part in an activity.  Don't miss out - get your Free passport now from Sheffield libraries and start collecting your learning credits at The Climbing Works

If your child already has a Learning Passport and climbs at The Works then please email so your child can be put on the Learning Destination register and start earning points straight away.
