We take down the problems or “blocs” on multiple sections every week. We strip, wash and set on a Wednesday and a Friday with the aim for all the blocs to be open to the public by 3pm. Each set has a range of difficulties from beginner through to advanced.
These are set mainly by our in-house route setting team. There is always a variety of styles to try. The different walls all pose different challenges and work contrasting strengths and weaknesses, so it is always worth giving the new set a go even if it is not your ‘favourite’ wall.
We are always looking to improve so if there is a route or move you particularly like, or a setter who you rate, let us know on Instagram or Facebook!
We set on a seven-week rotation with the first six weeks being the main bouldering downstairs and week seven being the sport board.
Week 6: an extra 9 formidable blocs of 7a and above spread throughout the centre.
Week 7: along with the sport board a variety of pink and green blocs are set throughout the centre, all based on specific techniques.
