The Atmosphere

After such a scorching summer, it was a pleasant cooler evening for round 5. Holds where finally holdable, competitors where cranking hard and pulling those ‘beautiful’ try hard faces. Not forgetting the locals bringing that awesome community vibe with them we’re so proud of here!

Attacking The Blocs

What a range of blocs for round 5! Set by Tom and Guy, with their faithful apprentice Reece, there was a beautiful array of problems for everyone to try. One problem in particular, that was regularly commented on, was the black volume route coming out of the roof at the far end of the comp wall. The flow was commented as being ‘top quality’. The notorious Wideboyz crack volumes where in play as usual, but with a slightly more considerate placement for those new to crack climbing (or lay backing for a few of you). Some holds we haven’t seen in a while appeared too, the wooden balls made for a slippery and fairly strong climb, with a few people slightly surprised from the lack of friction on them. Another great set by the in house boys, and Reece of course, with a huge variety from easier to harder ones which we’ve seen a few of you projecting already!
