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)

Snow update....

If you are thinking of coming down to The Foundry I am glad to say that Mowbray Street is gritted and clear of snow/ice, as are most of the major roads in Sheffield. Cars have compacted the snow in our carpark but it's drivable with care, or you can park on the road outside (urban clearway restrictions apply 4.30-6.30pm).

For those (like me) still unable to get their cars out of residential side roads, public transport appears to be running OK. If you're unfamiliar with public transport the 53 bus route runs right past our courtyard entrance, or we are just a 10-15 min walk from the city centre (see our website for directions).
