Resetting of the FiveTen Main Wall

Resetting is in progress this week and will be completed by friday.

There is already a new layback feature on line G. New volumes have been added to the stepped roofs. There is now a range of grades - from 4+ to 8A+. By the end of the week you'll find a wide variety of routes within that grade range. We'll be involving lots more volumes in the routes, whilst maintaining a number of more basic routes for training on.

As always, let us know what you think of the new routes.

Hope you enjoy the climbing!
