/ Boudering wall in Aberdeenshire
Would a new centre spark more interest? What are your thoughts?
Thought about it alot but in the end just dedicated my garage to training instead.
Even if just a very small industrial unit, there is alot to consider in pulling a project like that together, and alot of up-front cost. Even though the effort is put in to begin with my concern would be maintaining interest to keep it going, especially financially if renting somewhere.
If you live in peterhead use Buchan Ness, it is as good as a board, easy access, non-tidal, you can climb there year round and is perfect for lantern sessions. There is also quite a lot of isolated problems around the lighthouse and along to the Harbour, its worth exploring, not really worth recording though.
Also good for training/quick-hit sessions, are the granite-block railway bridges all along the old line from Aberdeen. Off the top of my head, Bullers Car Park and a couple near Cruden Bay.
But permission for that would be a nightmare. So i thought start small, with a bouldering facility.
I'll have a look at those places, yeh im from Peterhead. Lived there 25 years and didnt know anything about Boddam, or the sea cliffs there. Shocking really!!
