One of our major projects this year has been a full scale climbing wall at Firth Park Academy in Sheffield. With seven lead protected climbing lines, including 20 degree overhang, it provides twenty one different climbing routes plus an additional four traverse routes.
A wide age range will use the wall, including outside groups as well as the 11 to 16 year olds at the school; not to mention the staff, many of which are already keen climbers. The lead protection means that the wall can be used to teach traditional lead-style climbing, where the rope is clipped in as the climber ascends.
It is also kitted out with our made-to-fit lightweight matting which folds up to cover the wall when not in use.
