Behind closed curtains...........

.......... well, a rather large dust sheet actually..

..... work has now begun on refurbishment of the traverse corridor. Hand crafted resin features, a bunch of Rob's bespoke volumes, and some brand new holds will now give much more varied climbing in the corridor.

Moreover, changes to our music system over the past few months mean that the traverse corridor now has a dedicated speaker, pumping out the same tunes as in the main hall.
Watch this space for more details - we'll post pictures of the end result very shortly........
