postheadericon More bouldering going up

The Wave is the final section of bouldering we will be building in phase 1. This takes the overall area of the various bouldering walls to an impressive 450+sqm. Add to this 600sqm of roped climbing in and around the pit and a large group area and it's going to be a BIG centre.

postheadericon Big Boulder looking awesome!

The big twisted and curved panels were fitted to the Big Boulder last weekend and finally we can see what an impressive shape we've created. The Big Boulder has potential for all grades of problem as well as some route length link ups - we can't wait to climb on it! Meanwhile structural steels & timbers are going up around the pit and it won't be long before this starts getting panelled.

The Beacon have a unique modular system which has been configured to give some great features including chimneys, aretes, corners & an abseil platform. A perfect area for group use.

postheadericon Big Rock's getting bigger!

We're sorry we haven't updated recently, but things have been happening, as you can see. The pit is now finally formed, and will be left for a little while for the concrete to cure and dry. In the meantime, bouldering walls have been put up all along one side of the unit, including all angles from slightly slabby to worryingly overhanging. Next to that the big, freestanding boulder is also taking shape. The preformed modular wall is quickly going up across the other side of the chasm in the group area. Watch this space to see more bouldering and group areas sprouting up either side of the pit soon.
