Coming Soon: 2012 Route Series

With Lead Wall Renovations well on their way, we're getting excited to set for the upcoming route series. It's set to start Friday night, January 13th.

In the week leading up to the series, we hope that perspective participants will respect the hard work of the route setters and stay off the shiny new routes until the series commences.

Volunteers will be needed to help strip routes and wash holds starting January 7th. If you are interested in lending a hand, please talk to Sabrina or Simon.

Lead Wall Renovations

The Lead Wall Renovations have begun. We're working harder than ever to bring you loads of new angles, colors and routes. Should be up and running by the New Year, so be sure to come check it out. Sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime.
