Swansea gets an indoor climbing wall

w00t. An indoor climbing centre is opening just north of Swansea – next month.

Back in 2002, I went to a nice indoor wall just north of Cardiff pretty much every week. I progressed from absolute beginner to semi-competent, and enjoyed myself enormously. Unfortunately, I haven’t climbed since I came to Swansea. The drive to the climbing centre is too long, and I had an enforced break when I crashed my car coming back from there one night. I lost the inertia, and got waaaaaay too busy, and just could never justify the journey. I don’t fancy outdoor climbing so much yet, though I’m sure I’ll get to that.

This, then, is good news.
