Monday – Bouldering at the Barn or Hangar.
What is it: The Barn and The Hangar are two great bouldering centres found outside of Exeter. We have the AU van (8 seats) and try to get as many drivers as possible so that we can take a big group of us to spend the evening working on all the various problems set there. These are great places to experience bouldering at larger centres with a greater variety of difficulties and types of problems.
Cost: centre entry £3.50 (Barn) or £7.50 (Hangar) + petrol money (≈£4-5).
Sign up: the spreadsheet gets posted every week on our Facebook page, spaces go quickly so keep your eyes out!
