21 May 2013 Routesetting Feedback: Purple Spots

At the Climbing Works we're proud of our routesetters. In 2012 they set over a thousand problems and this year, with the addition of the Mini Works too, we've already passed 600 - and there's still another seven months to go!

We're Listening!

Recently we've decided to give you, our lovely customers, a feedback form for each new circuit that we set. We'd like to hear your views - whether you've enjoyed climbing the problems or not (but we hope you have). We'll give you a few weeks after the circuits go up to give you enough time to try all the problems and maybe even work some of those you've found more tricky. Then keep your eyes on this blog for the feedback form and get ready to tell us what you think.

First up, it's the turn of the Purple Spots circuit - a nice mid-range circuit. Whether you use these problems to warm up on, or whether you've been working hard to complete a few of them, let us know your opinions by filling out the form below.

 

Circuit: Purple Spots

Grade: 5-5+

2 May 2013 14:42 The Mini-Works: Opening Saturday 4th May

The Mini-Works is nearly done and we will be opening its doors to this new exciting extension on Saturday 4th May at 9.30am. There's still plenty to do but the route-setting is getting done today and the finishing touches will occur tomorrow.

 

As you can see below we've received some lovely new holds from Lapis and Bleaustone  which are currently going up as I write. There are some great looking kids circuits being set as well as some much harder ones. We'll get some more photos up tomorrow including ideas of what to expect when you come down on Saturday.


 

That's a lot of holds!!

 

 

 


First ascent of the kids boulder goes to Percy's 2.5yr old son, Eddie. Not sure what he's going to name it yet...
