Bouldering Circuits

The lads have completely stripped the Wave and Bleaustone Wall of holds, added new volumes to the Bleaustone Wall and are now beginning the process of setting new problems. The plan is to include a number of circuits, which will help give climbers a more structured session.

For those unfamiliar with circuits, basically you pick a grade range (circuit) and can then work to complete all the problems on that circuit. We are planning 5 circuits with grades from 3a to 8a, these will be spread over the centre on the Wave/Bleaustone Walls, Corridor and Furnace boards.
