Welcome to The Foundry Blog....

Opening its doors back in 1991, The Foundry has been at the heart of the Sheffield and UK climbing scenes ever since. Almost two decades on, the centre continues to provide a world class environment for climbers, whether you're new to the sport or about to tick your first Font 8b!

The blog will keep you up to date with the activity and achievements that are going on in and around The Foundry.

Hope to see you soon! - Neil Bentley (Centre Manager)

Still sore about £9000 a year tuition fees?

Make yourself feel a bit better by taking advantage of The Foundry's stupidly good value membership deals this term.

Full Time Students can get a 30 day membership for £20 at the moment, instead of the usual £35.

But that's not the big news.

Starting 26/9/11, the first 20 people to take out a 3 month membership pay £50 instead of the normal £85. That's simply an unmissable deal.

Or you can go the whole hog and get an annual membership for £200 instead of £220. But, again, there's only twenty of these cheap memberships available!
