Mo' Problems

20 May 2011 12:01

In the last week we've been getting back to setting some new problems. Yesterday a new 40 bloc (5+ to 6b'ish) Purple circuit went up, while earlier in the week the Berghaus Competition wall received 31 new blocs with another 4 going on this morning courtesy of Sam. The Berghaus Competition wall now has a topo on the mats underneath it or you can have a look on the website here to see what grade 'that problem you got shut down on' was. Those doing the math will figure out that all this equals 75 new problems in the last 7 days from Font 4 to 7c+. Not bad if we do say so ourselves.

Also this week we have reset one of the kids boulders, with the other being reset in the next 2 weeks. There was also a very successful FiveTen shoe demo and a very psyched Adult Improver's challenge night. Next week see's the return of the Clinic to The Climbing Works so if you have any niggling injuries, come down next Thursday to get them checked for FREE.

We also twitter'd and put on the website about the BeanFever lecture night. A heady lineup of climbing lectures all in the aid of a very good cause. Get your tickets at The Climbing Works for this (bound to be) brilliant night.

Finally, if you've had a long week and want a break from work / a bit of psyche for the weekend, check out the bouldering video's below for a bit of action from places 'far from the norm'. The first one is our own mild mannered coach Dave Mason crushing at Fairhead in Norn Iron while the second is Dan (Beastmaker) Varian checking out the delights of Torridon in Scotland
