On the 17th August we will be starting work onsite for Inverness Leisure (Aquadome) to upgrade the Bouldering Wall and Boulder Wall Matting. We have been working closely with Craig Steedman – Kevin Brown, Smiler Cuthbertson and The Wall team to make some cool changes.
The matting will all be upgraded to carpet top making for a much nicer environment and happier landings. The hall lighting is also being completely redone as we speak in advance of our works.
At the door end (entrance) we will be creating a new 40 degree wall which has a long 5 degree overhanging wall on the left and a then on the right the wall will merge into the existing freeform. We will also be adding a new training board to the other end of the wall. This will either have fingerboards or Campus rungs – yet to be confirmed.
These simple alterations should add significantly to the climbing experience at Inverness and offer some decent steepness.
Pictures to follow as work progresses!
