I can't believe it!! Apparently it down to insurance - well they need to sort out their insurance as most other walls up north allow them.

Harrogate is a very good wall and easily the best managed in the northern half of Yorks. (Can't speak for South Yorks as it's too far to go to climb on plastic)

In reply to Tom Vivian: Head to The Leeds wall, they have a dry tooling area, routes M3 - M8 with no extra entry fee :)

Can't argue with that.

Leeds would be ideal. It's so cold it feels like the Northern Corries too

Agreed and there probably isn't space for a sensible DT area....if that's not an oxymoron.

personallty. i wouldn't want 'amateurs' waving sticks about anywhere near me...a separate area is a good idea.

Can you imagine insurance companies trying to wesael out od any claims? i can... Patience, Grasshopper, patience... :-)

In reply to Tom Vivian: schmoolz are for people with no finger strength who want to look cool, like people who ride fixe bikes or that drive electric cars.

In reply to tom290483: I think that it's nonsense about insurance... have you actually been to the wall? Any insurance company that DID insure for this wold be bonkers and asking for trouble. it's a great and busy wall with an easy atmosphere and great routes. Don't mess with the magic. It just wouldn't work.

Oh dear. Only the last of those doesn't apply to me...

You've not ridden a fixie then? As if I'm cool, on a fixie with a pannier, mudguards and lots of fluo yellow. Fitter than I used to be, mind.

In reply to Tom Vivian: Head to Sunderland Climbing Wall this Friday!!!They have big events on for drytooling and schmoolz. Pritty sure it starts at 6 but give them a ring they are great help, plus one of the people who helped with the making of the schmoolz is there.

In reply to Tom Vivian: Can't use them at city bloc either. Glad Leeds does tooling and allows schmoolz's on bouldering wall too :-)

In reply to Tom Vivian:

I asked them about it today. Nothing to do with insurance apparently. It's a space problem. It's a very good wall but not the most extensive in the world - or even Yorkshire - and what space they have they are using for their core market, which makes sense to me.
