Routesetting Feedback: Black

18 Aug 2013

The black circuit is one that we got some really good feedback from last time round. Many people felt that the last set was a bit too hard, so with that in mind we think we've made this circuit that little bit easier. Don't take our word for it though, the problems have been up on the walls for a little over two weeks now, giving you time to test them - so let us know what you think using the form below. 

Usually somewhere in the middle of the grade range at the Climbing Works this colour circuit gets quite a lot of traffic from climbers of all abilities. This time it's been given a grade of "6a-ish" (!) by sole routesetter Percy. There's a few sit starts, a funky flying start (as a slightly shorter person I've not managed to get enough bounce for that one yet!) and plenty of sloping, balancing moves in between. There's also the usual pumpy problem just when you think it's all over, of course! A pleasing circuit I think, with something for everyone and a calm sense of satisfaction when the problems are ticked off - not many of these come easy. But it's not what I think that matters...so let us know your thoughts.
