Main wall improvements

Starting Monday 19th Rob Napier and Ben Tedstill will be making some changes to the 'double roof' section of the main wall.

The two upper sections of roof will be filled over with flat panels to allow for improved routes and to make it easier to add extra volumes on the routes. Four of the quickdraw bolts will be re-positioned during the new build.
