Meg climbs high

Friday, January 29, 2010

Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe recently visited Meg Munn MP’s constituency of Sheffield Heeley and experienced the dizzy heights of ‘bouldering’ at ‘The Climbing Works’ off Little London Road. The Works opened its doors at the start of December 2006 and provides over 1000mē of indoor climbing surface in a 10,000sq ft building.


Meg and Gerry met Managing Director Percy Bishton who took them around the site and explained why the sport is becoming increasingly popular. They have recently seen their best month ever with more people coming through the doors than before. There is little to no start up cost to take up the sport, and the centre has highly knowledgeable staff to help new comers as well as those with more experience.  


Meg said:


“The ‘Climbing Works’ provides facilities for anyone who would like to have a go at bouldering; climbing without ropes or harnesses. The centre provides a safe environment for enthusiasts and novices to learn and climb side by side.    


This is by no means a mainstream activity so I felt it was important for Gerry to see the fantastic facilities Sheffield has to offer. The Works is hosting an international festival in March with some of the best climbers in the world taking part. I wish them all the best.”
