/ Climbing Works Sheffield Vs Awesome walls Stoke
I mostly go to the works but am tempted to try out Stoke...what are peoples opinions on how they compare?
The regulars are friendly at Stoke!
do you often commute to stoke? sounds an awful long way to go
Aren't there like 3 other walls in Sheffield including a brand new Awesome Walls before you start trucking across to Stoke?
Awesome Walls Stoke is not quiet as hard core as The Works.

Thanks for your interest,
AW Stoke is a great wall with sociable staff and customers. The problems which are set there are always great to solve and they run regular comps, too.
Give it a go, see what you think.
Whenever I am in the area I usually go to AW Stoke. Nice set of problems, with all sorts of angles and interesting use of volumes and shape of walls. Cave is BIG and fun and good exercise.
Staff have always seemed particularly friendly and welcoming. Well worth a visit if you are over that way. From what I remember the grading for the main area was done in colour coded circuits, so very simple to choose problems of desired difficulty.
There has always been ample parking space whenever Ive been there.
Also, I thought i may have taken a wrong turn the first time I went as the approach road/area looked a little unlikely at first.
Only been to the works once. Cant remember much about it.
so my guess is that stoke my be worth a visit but works will probably come out on top.
There is now an Awesome Walls wall in Sheffield too, the other side of town from the Works but nevertheless much nearer than Stoke.
