28 Dec 2011 17:58 Ending the Year Right

The last few days of 2011 are upon us and if you're looking for your last climbing fix before the New Year then remember we are open 10am to 8pm all this week until New Years Eve when we will close at 3pm. We will be closed on New Years Day and we will reopen at midday on the 2nd January.

Starting the year of right is always important, even for a climbig wall. We're starting January off with the unveiling of our new wall with a repaiting and full reset of the area. All of this should be done by the end of the first week giving you well over 30 new problems of all grades.

Happy New Year to all our customers and friends

13 Dec 2011 16:56 Christmas Opening Times: Changes

We've made some slight changes to our opening times for the week running up to Christmas (which is next Monday - Yikes!).

You can see below the full opening hours over the 2 week Christmas & New Year period but in summary we will now be open 10am to 10pm Monday to Friday next week. All this means is that you have more time to burn those calories you're going to put on over the Christmas weekend!





 Monday 2nd January 2012: Normal Opening hours resume - Noon to 10pm.


8 Dec 2011 16:32 Let There Be Light

The nights are drawing in that little bit earlier so we thought it was a good time to get some work done that will help shine a light on your climbing.We've been further improving The Climbing Works over the last few days by adding in some more lighting into certain areas (apologies for the bad pun by the way). 


The kids boulder, the front room and the slab have all had extra lights put in. You can no longer blame lack of light for missing that foot hold....


We've also set a new 21 bloc Red circuit this week, Font 2 to 4+, and are currently resetting the Berghaus Competition wall for this Saturdays NIBL competition.



6 Dec 2011 13:51 Comps Comps Comps!!!

You wait 4 weeks for a Competition and then 3 come along all at once!

From this Saturday morning to next Friday night we will be having 3 competitions on the Berghaus Comp wall. The first one is the Northern Indoor Bouldering League (NIBL) round 2 which is a competition across a number of climbing walls in the North of England. It is open to everyone and you can find all the details on the website here.
The 2nd competition is a private affair which means the Berghaus comp wall will out of action on the afternoon of Wednesday 14th December.
The final comp is Round 2 of the Evolv Winter Bouldering league that takes place next Friday night (16th Dec) starting at 6pm. You can view some superb pictures from the 1st round here or you can watch the highlights film below.

What all of the above also means is that the Berghaus comp wall will be getting reset ALOT over the next 10days. Are you paying attention? Let us explain:
- The current set will be stripped this Thursday morning to be reset for the NIBL on Saturday 10th Dec
- The NIBL set will be stripped on Monday morning to be reset for the comp on Wednesday 14th Dec
- That set will be stripped on Thursday morning for Friday nights round 2 of the Evolv Winter Bouldering League.

What you all get is an amazing number and range of problems to try (some only for 1 night) with no time to project them. This will be an amazing test of stamina for those out there who like their comp wall problems.

To get you in the mood for some comp action, watch the highlights film from the Evolv Winter Bouldering League R1 below.

And before you ask that is 3 swinging balls....
