/ Beacon Climbing Wall, North Wales
On a more positive note I've been designing a 'comp style' lead wall over the last few days. With a maximum height of 17m and overhanging by nearly 7m it's going to give some impressive climbing! We'll be posting up images of the wall designs soon on our facebook page soon.
Thanks for taking an interest
Don't forget to provide something for slabaholics! A common problem I find with climbing walls is the predomination of overhangs, with slabs used only for easy learner stuff. I'd love to see some fingery 6a-6c slab climbs covered? Cheers!
What happened to the old place? I used to use it all the time in my Uni days and loved it.
Still there. Went at the start of December, nothing seemed to have changed since the Army champs about 5 years ago!
Many thanks. Will be packing my umbrella for visits in the foreseeable future!

Another vote for technical slab climbs!
As you say there is a lack of hard slab routes at climbing walls
Will everyone be welcome at the new wall, Steve? Or are you going to introduce a 'no swearing ' rule?
As its a family friendly activity surely the default should be to not swear any way?
Wish you well. I enjoyed climbing at the Beacon on wet days and look forward to seeing the new place.
