Indoor climbing in the Vancouver has come a long way in the past decade, with the opening of Climb Base 5 (formerly known as Cliffhanger Coquitlam) and The Hive Vancouver. However, one thing that has always been missing (in my opinion) is a 45 degree training wall jam packed with holds that stay the same for the years. This style of training is very much a throw-back to the british climbing scene and the old guard of climbers from Vancouver Island have known the benefits of having a wall like this for years.
Kaleb Thomas, the head routesetter at Climb Base 5, recently posted this photo of their new outdoor training wall. We hope it gets everyone thinking in the right direction!
