The Sun is shining and the windows are open in The Climbing Works as we enjoy this amazing late Indian Summer (though technically we haven't had a frost yet). September & October are always a special time in the Peak District with the potential to do some late season limestone or early grit, bouldering or routes.
If you're unlucky enough to work 9-5pm then the dark evenings can curtail any fun but we're always busy to make sure you have fresh blocs to climb in here. Tomorrow will see a new blue circuit go up and next week the Berghaus Competition wall will get reset so you only have the weekend to finish off any remaining projects. Watch this video of some of the problems if you're in need of some beta.
This weekend also brings the UK premiere of the Berghaus supported Reel Rock Tour to the Works. This is our 3rd year hosting it and it has always been a huge success. All the 2011 films have never been shown before and many will only be available on the Reel Rock Tour (no YouTube or DVD options here). I've been lucky enough to have watched the films already - got to make sure the DVD works - and there is some absolute crackers in there. You will undoubtedly leave the Works shaking your head at some of the brilliance, madness & outright stupidity that is on show.
We'll also be having our infamous raffle on the night, raising money for a community AED so bring your wallet with you. Tour Tickets are only £6 / 6.50 and are selling fast so make sure you order them asap and come to The Climbing Works this Sunday for a very unique evening. Still not sure?
