Like many climbing walls, it is housed in an old industrial building; not the prettiest of places. Inside though, it is a well used centre with a decided buzz of activity.
I was curious about the name, but I have since discovered that a redpoint describes when a route has been climbed cleanly after being worked on a top rope or with rests on the rope.
And I'm guessing that this red point was added to fit the theme :)
This room is mainly top roping for beginners.
At the end of the day, a route setter moved in to prepare for the competition scheduled for the following day.
Holds are bolted into the pre-drilled holes and changed often enough to keep the walls interesting, but not so often that climbers can't work a particular route during the course of a few visits.
There's almost always a shop attached somewhere.
Ben's verdict was that Redpoint was definitely worth a return visit and now that I know how to find it, I'm quite happy to go back again.
