Newish Climbing Wall in Somerset West

Postby Da_Climbing_Giraffe » Mon Oct 17, 2005 6:47 pm

Don't know how many of the climbers know of the newish climbing wall in Somerset Mall, I say its newish because its been there for a year in November. Its spectacular it could do with a few lead routes but they are getting there. Come try it out guys. Theres routes ranging from a 9 to 22. There is possiblities for more routes but you got to Find them. Come try it out!!!

Does This New Wall need work or Not

Yeah, I agree that it needs lead routes. but they will come - I think that they just need a few more real climbers to and climb and not just run of the mill people wanting to try out this thing called rock climbing so that they can realise that they need to do something in a hurry.
I don't think that it is ready for the Dumpster.

Yeah thats what it NEEDS is Real Climbers, More of us must go out there and get them up and running. So when we dont have time to go a crag we can just go there and have some climbs.

They should consider holding a comp there to attract the climbing public's attention. It would get climbers that don't live in SW a chance (and reason) to check the wall out.

Yea a comp would be good, what kind of comp are you wanting. Tell us and we'll try and put something together.

I haven't seen this wall, but I geuss the usual difficulty (ie lead) type comp would be the most popular. Don't suppose there's a bouldering wall?

Yeah you were right there is no bouldering wall. But we should have lead route soon, I say that under correction. Come through and have a climb or two and see what it is like and feel free to give some more suggestions.

Could you tell me their opperating times and it sis worth it to climb there (ie: do you get your moneys worth) as I am quite keen to come and try it some time.

The Indoor Adventure Arena opens at 09h00 and closes at 19h00. Club members have the option of extended climbing hours normally 09h00 to 21h00 but depending on the occasion the wall can be made available 24/7

To the Wise Guy who \"States\" fact with no back up.............. How can you talk about \"dodgy stuff\" with out any backing to your comment.
I've been climbing there a couple of times since they opened and i have yet to see some \"dodgy stuff\".
Come on be nice - give some reasoning to your statement next time.

By the way, have you been there to climb yet?
