/ Sunderland Climbing Centre
I just wanted to post a quick entry about the new climbing wall in sunderland. Its run by the same team who operate the Newcastle Climbing Centre and Rockworks climbing walls and opened last week, so if you in sunderland you now have a great new wall to go to for routes and bouldering. They have a website too - http://www.sunderlandclimbingcentre.co.uk
That's great! I only go back to Sunderland about twice a year but I'll check it out (even though it's in deepest, darkest Southwick by the looks of it)
What happened to the one over in Pallion - is it still there?
I had a look at the area on googlemaps and feel all nostalgic and homesick now...

The staff have added many more easy blacks this week.
I understand that they will be setting a new circuit every week once they get delivery of more new holds.
I'm hoping that the new circuits will be set in tighter grade ranges in the future and with more like 20 problems per circuit.
It's early days but they do have a suggestion box so you can let them know what you think of it so far!
