In reply to adgm: Well the extension to The Climbing Works isn't close to Meadowhall but it is in Sheffield and will add 1/3rd again to The Works. Coming soon to S8.

Due to the size of the project it's hard to put an opening date on it but we'll be aiming for mid 2013.

Graeme, Will that make The Works bouldering walls about 6 meters high then? ;-)

Good luck,

You could add to that; The wall will be well positioned to take advantage of the HS2 high speed rail line, offering world class facilities just 1hr 10mins from London.

Roll on 2033.
