Last week Percy and Longy ran the BMC National Routesetters course here at The Climbing Works and at The Foundry. Percy give them a blank Berghaus Competition wall and got the upcoming, routesetting, young guns to set on it under his watchful, intimidating, eyes.

This week you get to climb on these (20 blocs) and another dozen giving you a comp wall set that are a little harder than usual. There will be a topo on the mat by Wednesday afternoon.
For those WADs looking for a bit of stamina you get a F8b+ traverse that will get all but the fittest faltering and welcoming the soft red mats underneath the wall.

Back on the main walls we've got the Purple circuit coming down today with a new one going back up by the end of the week. Also getting a re-set is the kids boulder with Michelle and Dave stripping and setting one of the blocs today with the other getting changed at a later date.

Tomorrow night, Wed 18th May, we will be hosting a FiveTen shoe demo. This is your chance to try out shoes from across the 5.10 range. You can get a pair of technical tens and wear them all night to test their effect on your feet, or mix and match to find that perfect pair. It's a great opportunity to really find the right pair of climbing shoes for you. Starts at 6.30pm and goes on till closing so make sure you get down.

On Sunday, Dave Mason will selling a whole load of Moon sample's. These are sometimes unique items (never went into production) and some may be current season but all are at an amazing price.
