Altus Opening Party

by Mark Kemball The bouldering section of the new Altus wall opened on 12th May. About 50 climbers turned up to join Malcolm Smith sampling the problems on this huge free standing boulder. The problems were set to Simon Young´s usual high standard, and the structure itself is unique and is worth viewing as a sculpture, quite apart from the climbing. A very convivial afternoon´s climbing was rounded off nicely with beers and a barbeque. For the next few weeks, the opening times are going to be limited as construction moves on to the lead and top-roping walls. It´s best to contact Simon Young before visiting – See photos here, here and here.
