A few weeks of Walls…

Over the last few weeks I have been working across the country at different Climbing Walls.

Before and during the christmas period I was working with Dream Climbing Walls to finish off, route set and prep the new Glenmore Lodge Climbing Wall (go to Dream Climbing Walls Facebook page for pictures).  An excellent use the limited space has brought the indoor climbing provision at the national training centre into the 21st Century with the provision of teaching a range of skills.

 

In January Dream Climbing Walls completed the brilliant climbing wall at Edinburgh Academy comprising of slabs, overhangs, corners, columns and a varied and exciting bouldering wall.  At the tail end of the project I joined the team to route set and install the matting.  What a great resource the school has now and combined with their new traverse walls there will undoubtedly be some rock stars emerging in the years to come!

I am proud to be continuing my work with Edinburgh Academy to develop their climbing provision.

Speyside High School Inspection was the next job on the cards before heading to RAF Lossiemouth to install a new Tufa system to complete the wall re set.

Last week Scott and I made the overnight ferry journey to Shetland for an inspection and re set of the Clickimin Climbing wall in Lerwick.  Its easy to see a difference with design and imagination from the manufacturer can have a big impact on a wall.  Despite some limiting factors this wall provides a much valued indoor climbing venue for the local club and hopefully in the future lots of bidding wee climbers.
