Yes, of course, just as it struck the High Sports group as a perfect chance to expand their empire. The best sport climbers I know train in boulder gyms, using the circuits, and working on their power endurance. Of course a lead wall would be advantageous, I don't dispute that. But I have found that as much can be gained at a good boulder wall. Also I have known several other small groups of passionate climbers that have wanted to open walls in Brighton over the past ten years, but all turned down by the council because ... their purses were slightly lighter.

Money, errr ... talks. Passion, individuality, spirit ... walks. :)
