We got back late on Saturday after another mission to Orkney to install a new climbing wall at Kirkwall Grammar School. This brand new school is still several months away from opening, but when it is finished it will be mighty impressive. We were working for Morrison’s Construction who are also building the new swimming pool at the Pickaquoy Centre. Unbelievably, Kirkwall now has two brand new roped walls! and opens up a new chapter in climbing on the Island. The Grammar School Indoor Climbing Wall has all the key angles for introducing beginners and teaching Physical Education. Nothing too funky, but is totally functional and has plenty of height at 8.5 metres and is a great warm up to the leisure centre wall. Significantly, now there are two good walls on Orkney – Climbing Wall Award courses can now be run with ease. So its great to be home – but a bit sad to be sailing away after so many great weeks on Orkney. We all look forward to going back on holiday and enjoying climbing on the walls ourselves.
