In reply to mux: Ratho are due to start offering dry tooling in a week's time. Did you run this last year at AW Liverpool, and if so how did you operate the sessions?

In reply to jacobfinn: they are not sessions as such Jacob. Aw Liverpool have a dedicated tooling area so its just a turn up pay the fee and climb. Itís actually cheaper to drytool than it is to climb routes.

Not sure if intro to mixed/tooling session are on the cards but it is something I have suggested.

Currently anyone new to the AW Liverpool drytooling area goes through a quick briefing before they are allowed to use the facility unsupervised, once complete a note goes on their membership stating that they are safe. Usual rules apply for axes, eye wear, helmet etc.

In reply to mux: Has there been a good level of interest in tooling at AW?

In reply to jacobfinn: Yea not bad ...last night there were 6 people in the area. As there are only 9 lines I dont think you would want many more. and as I say the area is open every day.

I know space is limited up in the dry tooling area, but would it be possible to get an M4 route put up in there so that people who aren't up to M5+ / Scots VII can at least get a bit of training in, for strength and fitness if nothing else.

In reply to birdman: will do Bird man ..although you should try the new M5 as its fairly soft and the pole is good for thwacking.

three sticks to the top is the current record.
