Right then.

The renovations to the right hand side of the main wall are now complete! There's all sorts of new angles to get on, with no more sieges through the awkward stepped roofs. 

It's looking a tad bare at the moment, as setting is still ongoing (Rob is busy setting as I type).

But next week, the right hand side will be open, with a veritable smorgasbord of routes to go at.

These new renovations really make the most out of the space on the main wall, and the variety of climbing on offer now will undoubtedly spice up training sessions down the wall this season.....

.... didn't climb on the right hand side before? Bet you do now.
