/ Best NW wall for slab lover
We've climbed at: Kendal, Caernarfon, Preston, Stockport, Liverpool, Lancaster and Manchester. Have we missed anywhere within the NW with good slabs? Has anyone any experience of Leeds, Brighouse, Warrington or is it worth the mileage over to Sheffield. We're looking for a good day out next week during the hols and threfore have the time to go beyond our usual walls (Preston, Lancaster).
Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated.
Been to Harrogate, Liverpool and Manchester Climbing Center this week. All within an hour[ish] of Longridge/Preston and all great. MCC has a lot of flat/slab I thought, and loads of mid/lower grade stuff, really enjoyed it today. Want to go back, once recovered !
Plas Power Adventure in Wrexham has a slab wall.
Warrington has a good longish slab for top roping and has about 4 or 5 lines on it I think. The end one has quick draws so you can practice clipping.
Rope Race in Marple have got good top roping slabs, plus a wicked slab section in the upstairs bouldering room which coincidently has just had a big re-set!
