News - December 2016


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.

1 Dec 2016 The Mini Works Winter Bouldering Ladder R2

The second round of the Mini Works Winter Bouldering Ladder will be set on Friday 2nd December. This is a fun competition set over 4 rounds suitable for 5 - 14 year olds.

Results from the first round can be found here

 Score cards for the second round can be printed off or pick one up from the Mini Works for £1. The second round will be the PINK climbs.

Points are given on the number of attempts it takes for you to complete the boulder. You can have as many attempts on each boulder as you like over the course of the month. The point system is explained on the score cards.

The rules, this is a self marked competition so no cheating!!

1) An attempt starts as soon as your feet leave the floor

2) One hand must start on the numbered hold - finish by matching the top hold

3) Only use the black coloured holds used on the circuit. Aretes, volumes and wall features are allowed.

4) Hand your scorecard to reception when you have finished

Score will be split into male and female 5- 6 yrs / 7 – 8 yrs / 9 – 11 yrs / 12 – 14 yrs. Results from each round will be posted on the website and in the Mini Works. The overall winners will be announced after all 4 rounds.

This is a fun competition set for children aged 5 – 14 years and not suitable for those taking part in the winter bouldering series in the Main Centre.
