/ Lancaster walls
I used Lancaster wall a few times over Christmas and enjoyed it. Found the problems on the boulder wall and the lead were nicely set. It is pretty small though - I reckon it'd be fine for using once a week, but any more than that and you'll probably want to mix it up a bit.
For what it's worth, I was working in the grade range of up to about V4 and 6c.
i climb there alot at the moment.. 4-5 times a week.. seems to be a few of us that climb there on a very regular basis.. grades are vo to v9, 5+ to 7b+for the routes.
it's small but the probelms and routes are changed on a very regular basis.. every 4 weeks for the bouldering... which works really well for me.. i often could do with an extra week or two for some of the problems i'm trying
i only climb the routes about onc a week, finding them pretty good.. intend to increase the amount i'm doing on these.
it can get very busy but i find if it's too busy in teh bouldering area i go and do an hour or so in the gym and come back down and the walls very quiet.
the late afternoons during the weekends tend to get quite busy
so 5 to 6 pm in the bouldering area is often rammed but much quieter after that and the routes are often very quiet apart from weekends
staff are super enthusiastic, keen on listening to customers, helping with technique and training ideas and stuff like that... for 25 quid per month for the use of the whole centre it's well worth joining up in my humble opinion that is :o)
