The Foundry the U.K's first dedicated large indoor climbing centre to open in December 1991. Designed by climbers to provide a climbing facility to suit all from beginner to expert. We have added new walls through the years in order to continually improve and upgrade the Centre. Most recently in 2005 and 2006 a new top rope slab area and extension of 'The Wave' bouldering wall with a flat panel 10 to 20 degree section with lots of technical less steep problems set with Bleaustone holds, the walls sponsor. In November 2007 we opened a 40 degree training board in The Furnace climbing hall. This is covered with holds and resin foot features to suit problem creation from font 6b to 8b.

    Hello, I'm looking for a regular climbing partner, once a week (e.g. Monday nights, 6:30 onwards). I'm keen but injured and so how much I can do per session varies hugely - always happy to do a bit more belaying though. Climbing around 6a+/6b+ at the … ...

    Climbing with Gee (in the middle of moving my stuff :P). Was a good session, managed to toprope 3 6b+s & a 6c. Also managed the scary 6a lead route (I'm not sure I'm meant to use the top clip as a hold, but at that point in time I didn't care :P).

    Climbing with Gee. Was very hot but we did manage a few routes. Nearly managed a terrifying 6a lead that had a bit of a roof. Was really close to completing it, & may have managed it if it wasn't closing time...

    Managed a 6b toproping then ventured onto my first bit of leading since the accident. I managed to lead a 5+/6a & a 6a, but got too scared on the last 6a :P. But I'm sure I'll have all my confidence back soon enough...

    Climbing with G. I'd not quite got my stamina back, but I've been doing well at getting back into climbing. Managed 2 6bs & some 6as.

    I'm heading climbing down the foundry this weekend some time. Flexible on timing. I'm up for top roping and bouldering. I'm about level 6a on top rope. I can do very little bouldering as I'm protecting my tendon so don't do much at the moment.

    Climbing with G. Did a load of 6b+ toproping routes- didn't realise how much I'd missed toproping :P. Couldn't manage the 6c ones tho :/. Oh & the cake (basically a fridge cake with caramel in it) was to die for :P.

    Climbing with Haggi. Did a 6c & a features-only top-roping route, & 3 6a lead routes. One of the lead routes had a bit so steep that it was pretty much a roof. I finally had the guts to tackle it :D. Only 1 6a lead route that I haven't done now- will ...

    Climbing with G & Shaun. Couldn't be arsed with the run today :P. Managed a surprising amount of climbing considering that this was the 3rd day in a row that I was climbing :P. This included 2 6a lead routes, a features-only & 6b+ toproping route & a ...
