Introduction to Route Setting Course
On 11th November 2014 an Introduction to Route Setting Course will be taking place in the Matrix. Sections of the bouldering wall will be cordoned off to allow the course to take place but climbers will be able to access the facility as normal.

Latest News
Following the boulder set last week we now have a whole new set of problems and also lots of new holds with a mixture from Core, Bleustone and Lapis. Some of the holds are smaller allowing us to do a more technical crimpy set which is what many of our climbers have asked for. As always we have set a good range of problems so why not come down and try out the new boulder set and let us know what you think of the holds. For photos please click here.

The Matrix is probably one of the largest fibreglass moulded bouldering walls in the country. The wall contains several features and is designed to suit a range of abilities. Routes are set to provide opportunities for beginners and experienced climbers alike and are changed frequently to maintain interest. Introductory classes are organised regularly to enable beginners to learn basic techniques and to provide safety information.
