New Opening Times
After many many years we have decided to extend our weekday opening hours. From Monday 10th March we will be opening on Monday - Friday at 10am. This gives an extension of 2 hours to our off-peak climbing time, perfect for those people wanting to avoid the evening hoards and queues.
We are going to trial the new times until Easter and then we will review it (but we hope it will become permanent).

Rope Bay Update
Well folks, the rope bay is almost finished. As often happens we have hit on a few last minute snags before we can sign it off as completely finished.
We have to test all the leading bolts and anchors before we can let everyone loose on them, then we have to routeset the main lead wall. This means:
The Rope Bay will be partially open from 7pm tonight (Tues 4th March) for Top Roping Only.
The Rope Bay will be fully open from 7pm on Thursday 6th March.
Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay in fully opeing the new walls but I'm sure thay will be worth it.
