Highest and biggest? New Sunderland wall aims to set standards

Rockworks says it is building the “highest and biggest” climbing wall in the country. (Depends which country, of course – the WICC in Wales is very big and high…though only 17m; see below) Based in Sunderland, the competion-quality wall boasts a height of 23m and will host the BICCs in Feb 2003. Rockworks is starting the build now and the new wall will be launching on the weekend of 3/4/5 Jan 2003.If you want to track its progress, check out www.smartboysonline.co.uk or www.northumberlandbouldering.co.uk, and very soon on the wall´s own website www.sunderlandwall.co.uk.
