New climbs and boulders are up and this is not all of them. Get in and find them, climb them and let us know how you go. Free fist bump to all successful senders.

New boulders are up as well as the new routes on the roof. Get into the cool of The Rock and pull down. Also only a couple of weeks to go if you are still training for the upcoming Spartan Race, come and talk to us about how we can help.

This would be a great asset for Geelong, even better than a new skate park or Xmas tree. Sign and help get it moving.
(Yes I know I may be shooting myself in the foot, but this would be great. )
