The wall

Lochbroom leisure centre climbing wall has had bit of a remodel. From the old offset brick setup from the past the new wall looks awesome.

The new wall is yet another brilliant design from Dream Climbing Walls that almost completely replaces the, lets say vintage climbing wall that was there. With 8 lines that can be top roped or lead climbed, and great range of angles this wall offers some great climbing for any experience level.

If you are a brand new climber looking to try it out there is plenty for you to have fun on. Most of the 8 lines offer accesable routes for all ages and abilities.

If you're an experienced climber looking to push yourself indoors when the weather is grim, with the routes set there will be plenty to work on.

The wall also has the facilities for instructors to practice and teach abseiling from a very cleverly designed retractable abseil ledge.

Grand opening

The grand opening was a great afternoon. There were kids classes with youngsters coming in to try the new wall and have loads of fun playing climbing games, to families and friends coming to enjoy a nice social climb.

With so many friendly faces, big smiles and free tea, coffe and cakes the grand opening was excellent. Its great to see so many people come and use the new wall, all so happy to have something so good on their doorstep, something to spend some time with family and friends doing, something to climb when its wet outside.
