Saturday 4th April - BMC Leading Ladder

The Foundry
is looking forward to hosting the final of the BMC Leading Ladder tomorrow.

All routes in the Furnace and on the Main leading wall will be closed to the public during the event.

Top Rope lines and bouldering will be unaffected by the competition and open as normal.

All this week we have been setting new lead routes with grades ranging from 6a to 8b ready for the competition. These will of course reman in place after the weekend, so even if you didn't reach the final (or possibly didn't even enter the event) you can still test yourself out on them.
