Well, Happy New Year! We were sad to have to close our doors again on Christmas eve and unfortunately we still have no actual date of when we will be able to reopen them to you but, we have been busy over this lockdown period and we hope you will not be disappointed when Fenrock reopens!
In early January, the entire wall was stripped and each hold was thoroughly cleaned ready for Rich Winters who came to visit. Fenrock’s first guest setter spent a day putting up a great selection of routes for all grades and ability of climbers. You will notice a difference in setting style using a variety of holds in each route. The lower grades require some technical ability and there is a noticeable transition between the levels. At the other end of the spectrum, Fenrock now has some extra grade tags for V6/7 and V8+. These routes require some powerful moves and strength for the sends. We are sure you are going to love them all, from warming up through to pushing yourselves to your limits. The wall is packed with routes so there is plenty to keep you busy.
Now lets talk about Zone 2…
Our amazing carpenter has been working hard at finishing zone 2 and it is looking fantastic! A huge expanse of vert, slab and less overhanging areas to play with. We can’t wait to be able to double the wall space and open up this area to you. We have a list of jobs we are ticking off to enable this to happen and hope to have it painted and some of the area fitted with safety matting for when we open. EXCITING!
During lockdown we have also had the chance to finish decorating the hallway to the loos and treatment room to make this more pleasant to walk through. A mountain scape has been painted in the foyer and these finishing touches have made a lot of difference. Now Spring is on the way, it will be a lot warmer through there too.
and the shop…
The launch of Fenrock official premium hoodies is now live. These super soft, organic and vegan hoodies are our best yet. The squidgy, comfy band around the hood is so snuggly, get yours ordered before the deadline and help us to fund the mats for zone 2. OK thats a lot of hoodies but….. you won’t be disappointed!
We are designing a Spring/Summer collection of tees and vests and will be restocking the rest of the shop in due course so watch this space and keep an eye on the website for more info and offers.
So who has been training during Lockdown? Have you been giving your bodies a much deserved rest or have you been in beast mode ready for return? Whatever you have been up to, we can’t wait to see you all again.
Stay safe Fenrockers!
