How high will it be?

Hi guys

To answer your questios:

Smollett, the centre will roughly have 700msq of climbing wall surface.

Hopefully the top out boulder will be a success. It's often a point overlooked by most climbing centres. We think it's an important feature which, if done well should add an extra element to indoor bouldering.

ERU, boulder problems will not go above 4.5m and the majority will be 4m and below.

There will be a top rope section for clubs and courses that will go as high as 9m.

You may have noticed however, that the virtual tour showed the bouldering walls higher than 4.5m. This is that case in some places for structural reasons. Climbs will not go this high.

Hope that answered your question!
