/ Great deals at Climbing Walls
Found myself wishing that the Tower in Beaumont Leys did the same or something similar. Then realised that maybe they do but that they don't advertise it prominently.
Is it only new walls that take the trouble to prominently advertise their deals??
I think the £25 quid a month unlimited at glasgow climbing centre is pretty damn good. Works for Xscape at braehead too,
Nottingham have offered books of 10 tickets which save about £1 a visit for years. The Beacon used to do the same and may still do.
I think I prefer the "use anytime" schemes. There are months when I just can't get to the wall - injured, away, can't be arsed... etc
Which wall are you?
Ah. A tad far for me to travel. :-)
How about this-
Available at Awesome Walls Liverpool, Stockport, Stoke and soon Sheffield.
Luxury Lunchtime £4 with a free hot drink 11.30 - 14:00 Monday to Friday
Student 555- £5.00 before 5pm 5 days a week Monday to Friday.
We now do passes for Students, Juniors, Couples and Families (week, month, 6 month & annual)
All members get 2p back in their pound on all spends not just entrance on our loyalty scheme!
Monthly offers here- http://www.awesomewalls.co.uk/offers/this-months-vouchers
Our Facebook 'offers' are regular.
All in all I think I think these are all Awesome deals (but I would!).
All deals can be changed, altered or stopped without prior notice but we'll do our best to please!
Foundry student annual membership: £220. Let's assume 8 weeks holiday (PhD not normal student), that means £5 per week I'm in Sheffield. Since I go there on average 3 times a week that's less than £1.70 per time. Pretty damn good deal!
> We now do passes for Students, Juniors, Couples
Couples is interesting, do you require any proof of coupledom? (Apart from same address?)
Otherwise it would just be 2 people living at the same address, I would have thought.
For the couples pass we require passport, driving licence, three utility bills, a sworn witness statement and a full on kiss, NOT!
Like a lot of things, we take it on good trust but if it became apparent that people were abusing our trust then we'd have to tighten up.
In the DAV climbing wall Munich they offer a €300 reward for dopping people in who betray the good nature of the wall operators and the culprits get banned with there name and picture listed for all to see! (ok, I might have made that very last bit up!)
I'm liking the awesome walls offers... fancy building one in Castleford? Sheffield is just that little bit too far :p
The Foundry has also just introduced a 10for12 offer for adults.
Plus for £15/year you can save £1/visit off your entry fee - which currently means you pay student prices! :)

how's the progress? hoew soon is soon?
Planning permission has been granted so we have the green light.
We're still looking at early March 2013 but as the plans and ideas grow this could be stretched a few more months.
All the latest will be published on our website http://www.awesomewalls.co.uk and on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/AwesomeWallsSheffield
Thanks for asking,
Thanks Dave, I stand corrected! No-one explained this when I switched to the new card, is it all recorded on cards? I'll have to see how much "credit" I have, could be quite a bit by now! I'be never been asked for my card when spending on refreshments though, how does that work?
The lunchtime deal sounds good, was planning for it today but the sun came out ;)
My first visit to the Loughborough wall I went for the 12 for 10 deal too. During a break I got out a calculator and worked out that the 12 months for the price of 9 was an even better deal (maths 'O' level see?) so they let me switch. Even if I only went once a week it works out cheaper. (I think it was just an opening offer in Sept though, don't want to raise hopes to no avail)
Just checked Craggy Islands website, and yes if you pay the annual membership then you don't make a saving £12.50 plus the £82.50 for 10 entries when normal entry is £8.75. However you haven't accounted for the fact that you don't actually have to have the annual membership, in fact annual membership alone saves you £2.25 per visit. As none members entry is £11.
So if you buy the 10 at £82 you are saving £28 which accounts for two free sessions.
However the best deal is if you do DD at £42 a month, this gives you unlimited access to both centres, you don't pay the annual fee, you also save 10% on courses run by Craggy, and 10% off of Epic Adventures (Gaz Parry), Rock and Sun, Mountain goat adventures, Burgundy Villas and Climb Magazine.
A bit of a 'hidden' offer here but one I've found to be very good value:
Blackpool - The purpose built, outside climbing towers that offer a varity of climbing inc dry tooling. The fairly new inside lead wall at the sports centre and the fully matted bouldering room. - £30 per month for unlitited use of all 3 facilities or £56 pm for a joint membership. Why is it hidden? Here's the rub - Join the council run gym here in Blackpool for those prices above and you get unlimited use of 3 gyms inc as many classes as you want (combat, spinning etc) unlimited swimming at 2 pools and the climbing thrown in. Less than a pound a day per person for all of that really takes some beating.
All you do is like us on Facebook print off the voucher, pop down and register. Every visit in November will then be £4.
