NOT IN ACTION. Boarded over to provide more teaching space in 1999; no clear plans to put it back in use. [01/00] Was block with rock inserts by DR and local climbers with BMC involvement, built 1987. 120 sq m of wall surface. Sports centre facilities.

Fairly old-fashioned but was brilliant for extended lunchtime tomfoolery. Also used by talented climbers (not me!) for endless, traversing. [Rob Dickson 2/97]
