3 Wise Monkeys

Opening a new climbing wall is a big job (I remember working 80 days straight to get the Ice Factor open in 2003). The team at 3WM are nearly there and I've nothing but respect for all of the effort they've put into getting this close.
I spent the last 2 days doing some training for the staff at the wall (and, ahem, a little climbing too- got to keep the training contextual)- team psyche is high! The Management are keen to create a friendly wall for both existing climbers as well as those new to or just giving it a try so we spent a lot of time talking about how we expected the wall to be used and levels of different practise that are acceptable and how to approach customers when the staff aren't familiar or have questions about what they are doing.
Dream Walls have as usual made great use of the space. The wall is narrow but not excessively so and the fist batch of routes were great. The bouldering wall has been literally taking shape before our eyes no just bring on May when I can use it all the time!!
