/ Best Wall for Bouldering In Sheffield
Whats the best wall in Sheffield for Bouldering?
I am moving back up north to Sheffield & having never climbed at a Sheffield wall I am after some guidance from local climbers. UKC shows circa 4 walls & i'd rather not have to visit them all & pay the membership fee's to ultimately end up visiting 1 wall on a regular basis & the other 3 never again.
So let me know what you think?
The Foundry and The Edge both have great walls and good bouldering, but if it's purely bouldering you're after then the Climbing Works is quite possibly the best facility in the country.
What John said. Climbing Works is brilliant.
Why thank you, kind Sir. But I'm sure you'll still be wanting me to sort out your climbTIME database. Fear not, I'm actually working on it as we speak!
I'll be up in Sheffield over Easter & will mosy on over to The Climbing Works to check it out as my 1st port of call. Some London based friends had also recommended the 'works' but nice to have a bit more confirmation from Sheffield climbers / boulderers.
Works is a no-brainer really, but that isn't to say the others aren't worth checking out - they are.
The Foundry has a bouldering scene of its own.
The Matrix is a bit limited, but its nice enough and its cheap.
(Also consistently much warmer than the Works which isn't a good thing most of the time, but it's been a godsend a couple of times this winter when the Works was just *too* cold. ;o)
Has to be the works for the size and varied problems. The coffee is also tops!
Also worth checking out the Edge. Big fan of their bouldering room.
Agreed. The works us definitely in its own league for bouldering but that doesn't mean the others aren't worth a look if you have time/money. The edge has a good featured wall with a couple of fun cracks and the foundry is great for overhangs and roofs.
