Dry Tooling in the Mammut Sponsored Furnace!

The Furnace now sports not only a handful of new routes, but is also now sponsored by Mammut.

Mammut have kindly provided brand new quickdraws for the whole of the Furnace.

Dry tooling is also back for the 2010/2011 season. This year Tim Hill has set some awesome routes with purpose built wooden axe placements.

Dry tooling sessions are £10, and run for the last two hours of every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

We provide all the gear, so there's not much of an excuse not to have a go!
