"Kendal Wall has to be one of my all time favourite climbing centres. The sheer size of it allows for any climber no matter what level to enjoy themselves, there's now epic amounts of bouldering thanks to the new build just completed and they have some crazy high walls up to 24.5m!"

As well as new circuits, a special addition to the new bouldering wall is the new “Routing Roof”.

For those that don't know what that is, it's basically a 10-15m long board with a rising mat below it meaning there's no need for ropes! It's super steep at around 70 degrees I reckon and not only are there some awesome routes set on it up to 7b, but also, the circuit board situated right next to it has some awesome circuits graded up to 7c (soon to be an 8a/b) that can be linked easily into the routing roof creating potentially the best endurance training board I've ever seen!

I set a figure of eight circuit graded at around f6b+ (30 moves) and if you link that into the easiest line on the routing roof, I reckon you'll get a nice 6c+/7a at 60+ moves!!! Also, the way I designed all my circuits and routes on the routing roof, they can be climbed in any direction, meaning unlimited potential for endurance training! Robbie Phillips, Route Setter
