21 Jan 2010 15:40 An Unusual Visit


Today we had the pleasure of having our local MP Meg Munn& the Minister for Sport Gerry Sutcliffe visit The Climbing Works.


We've had Meg in before for a chat and a look around, this time she came back with Gerry for a look at a local business that's doing something different from normal sports.


The Climbing Works not only provides a fine facility for our regular customers but we also work closely with school partnerships, charities and other local community organisations. As the biggest bouldering centre in the world we're pretty proud of all that we do (toddler/parent free afternoons, free improver sessions, green policy, CWIF etc..) and the wide range of climber we attract (from 2 yr olds to the Gandalfian unknown age of big Ron). Climbing is nowhere near a mainstream activity so it's always nice to get visits from government officials to promote and explain what else is out there beyond your regular team & individual sports.

Percy even managed to get Meg to get a pair of shoes on and to try her hand at climbing. She didn't do too badly either. Unfortunately he couldn't persuade her to try the new purple spotty's that he was setting...but they did enjoy the coffee on offer.

21 Jan 2010 12:47 New Circuit & Physio

The Browns have disappeared into the holds room and the purple spotty's have returned to the wall.


Percy has started setting today so by tomorrow you should have another 40+ problems in the Font 6a-6c range to climb on. This is on top of the 30 problems that are now on the comp wall.


Tonight the Clinic return to the Works with their free physio advice. Rick and John will be over at the Campus board from 7-9pm.


We've also got our CWIF 10 page up on the website. With strong teams already confirmed from France, Austria and Holland it's going to be a great day. Read up on the festival and get psyched!
