The brainchild of Paul Twomey and Rich Emerson there are 750 square meters of climbing wall with over 200 problems set that include Font style colour circuits to suit all abilities. There are 3 large circuit boards and a dedicated training area, a café - serving espresso of course, and showers.
The Academy will also feature events, including competitions and Chris Sharma is already booked to give a lecture in the new year.
