Re-Setting Routes

re-setting routes

We take down the problems or “blocs” on one section every week. We usually strip, wash and set on a Friday with the aim for all the new blocs to be open to the public by 5pm.

These are set mainly by our in-house route setting team along with freelancers specially chosen by the Head Setter. 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!

Setting Rotation

We rotate which walls are set on a rolling basis, so there is plenty of time to climb each new set before the routes come back down.

Added extras!

As well as our regular sets, we sometimes set a random selection of pinks and greens or hard wooden blocs around the centre.


All of the blocs at both centres are uploaded into an easy to use app called Toplogger. You can download the app, and use it to track your progress at Chimera Tunbridge Well and Chimera Canterbury.
