Since the opening 2 months ago the DIY’ing has been somewhat receded to the background. However, we made some small improvements, like benches and hooklets in the changing rooms, but also some major ones. After months of negotiating with the gas companies we finally got gas a month ago. The floor heating is now fully operational and you can now walk around with bare feet comfortably. And there are nice hot showers now!
There’s a beautiful, one-of-a-kind, Stamtisch made by Frank. The towel racks in the showers are placed today as well.
We have 2 new circuits: the green Axis-circuit (5- – 6a) and the purple Squadra-circuit (7b-8a+). The Squadra holds are selected by Nicky de Leeuw and have been donated to us by his parents, a very special gesture!
Today we removed and cleaned the red circuit (thanks Robert and Tim!) and tomorrow, Friday 30 November, a new red circuit will be set under supervision of our head route setters Michiel and Remmelt. You’re welcome to test this new circuit on Friday evening with live DJ’s I.VO.D en JFM, that is… unless you’re participating in Saturday’s K3-contest as the contest routes will be set that day as well.
The K3-contest is organised by Yeti for her members and starts Saturday at 15.00h with finals at 19.00h The Bouldercenter closes as always at 18.00h for the regular visitors. Participants are not allowed to enter the Bouldercenter on Friday and are welcome as of 14.30h on Saturday.
Furthermore we have plans for some events. Friday night 7 December we’ll organise an introduction training boulderen, the youth group of Klimmuur Den Haag will most like train with us again on Saturday morning 15 December and Jonas of Slacktivity will organise a slackline workshop on Monday evening 17 December. We’ll provide you a.s.a.p with the details!
And then it’s already Christmas time! Sunday 23 December we close the doors at 17.00h for a brief Chrismas break. Thursday 27 December we’re open again. We’ll be putting a personnel add up any day now and if we manage to find the right candidates in time, we plan to be open earlier in the afternoon in the week before Christmas.
We keep you posted!
