Just checked out this wall today and its GREAT! I only bouldered but eyed up the leading and it looks nice and long and varous grades. The bouldering is very good. Nice flowing problems. Like how there's an emphasis on circuit/stamina trg too. The wee circuit room upstairs at about 45 degrees is diamond. Great to get strong on and work the core..I'll defo be back!!!

this wall is a great wall. the holds are changed every month so you get different routs every time. the staff are chatty and you can have a joke with them.

This is a fantastic place. Another wall has recently been added against the far end(under the round glass window) and the routes are changed reasonably often. The 'team' there are both helpful and friendly. The ability to have a coffe and sandwich between climbs makes for a great day 'in'/evening on the wall.
