Route Setting Changes for 2018

Happy new Year 2018!

To kick off the new year with a bang we will be introducing more frequent route setting at Red Spider. That means more new routes more often for you to play on.

We will be doing this in 2 ways:

  1. Due to popular demand we will be increasing the frequency of our boulder comp from every 2 months to every month. Bringing you 40 brand spanking new boulder comp wall problems, from some of the country’s top setters every month! Excited? We are!
  2. To compensate for the extra boulder comp wall set and due to increased usage we will be introducing an extra reset on our regular circuit sets every other week. We will continue having a reset every Thursday and have the extra resets every other Tuesday. This means about 150 new problems being set per month! Wowsers!

At Red Spider we are committed to bringing you the very best quality route setting with a variety of styles from no fewer than 10 different setters per month both guest and inhouse. We will also be introducing exciting new holds regularly throughout the year in some of the latest shapes on the market, so keep on the look out.

We look forward to seeing lots of you crushing in 2018
