Core Climbing Holds Red Point Challenge

"The Core Climbing Holds Red Point Challenge"
We have some exciting new holds from Core Climbing, a new Sheffield based hold manufacturer. http://www.coreclimbing.co.uk/ There will be two new routes set on the main wall, a 7b+/7c and a 8a/8a+ using exclusively Core Climbing Holds.
You will have from the evening of Monday 23rd February 2009, to the evening of Thursday 19th March 2009. to successfully redpoint your chosen route.
Any successful red point of each route will automatically enter you into a draw to receive one of two free Core Climbing finger boards!
(If you normally easily red point above the 7c/+ level the you will be expected to try the harder route in order to be eligable to claim a prize!)
For more information, please ask at reception.....Good Luck!!
