Dry tooling is back!

New dry tooling routes for the winter season will be set this Thursday/Friday by Tim Hill - a climber and Foundry staff member who likes his mixed winter routes.

This year the dry tooling routes will also have logs and sleepers to tussle with as well as drilled resin holds!

The routes will be open starting Monday 18th 7.45-9.45pm.

You get 2 hours for £10. This includes gear - helmets with visors plus axes on leashes. You can bring your own axes provided you have springy leashes with your axes (or we may be able to provide leashes).

Dry Tooling sessions will be running every Monday/Friday evening 7.45-9.45pm and weekends 5.30-7.30pm.
