Welcome to The Foundry Blog....

Opening its doors back in 1991, The Foundry has been at the heart of the Sheffield and UK climbing scenes ever since. Almost two decades on, the centre continues to provide a world class environment for climbers, whether you're new to the sport or about to tick your first Font 8b!

The blog will keep you up to date with the activity and achievements that are going on in and around The Foundry.

Hope to see you soon! - Neil Bentley (Centre Manager)

More holds have gone onto the traverse corridor this week..............

Numbers 1 - 10, and all the letters of
alphabet can now be found about the corridor.

These bright, juggy holds will make climbing in the traverse corridor far more engaging for the youngsters.

Moreover, there is now a dedicated kid's section in the traverse corridor, with lots of easy traverses with friendly juggy holds. There are also removable foam obstacles in place to make the climbing that little bit more challenging!

The Foundry sees more and more young climbers coming through its doors each day, and we hope that such enhancements to the centre will help to encourage even more kids to take up the sport!
