Volumes of new routes!

Rob and Ash have been working hard stripping the CragX vertical wall and they are now in the process of re-setting it.

The volumes have had a nice lick of paint and have been moved around to keep things fresh and interesting. There's plenty of laybacking, mantling and rockovers for you to get stuck into, and that's before the bolt on holds are even on the wall.

New routes will be set today and tomorrow.

As always, we look forward to your feedback. Look out for updated route topo's at foundryclimbing.com.
