Scaling the heights in South Norfolk
South Norfolk Climbing Club, in partnership with Morley village and sports hall, have unveiled a new, state-of-the-art climbing wall.
It is the only public indoor wall in South Norfolk, standing seven metres tall, with 12 rope lines. There are more than 36 routes up, from grade 3 to 7a – along with a 1.6 metre overhang and tufa climb.
The Morley Wall is located in Morley, near Wymondham, and it openedn to the public for the first time on May 7. The wall is managed by South Norfolk Climbing Club, a charity set up by a passionate group of experienced climbers and professional climbing instructors, who offer:
- Professional climbing tuition for children and adults
- Social climbing opportunities
- Casual climbing sessions for independent climbers
- A fun way to get active
George Freeman MP, who officially opened the wall, said: “This is a great example of what can be achieved by team work between the community, councils and sports clubs… It is so lovely to see South Norfolk and a village having a facility like this out here and, who knows, we might even find the next climbing champion!”
South Norfolk Council provided £20,000, alongside Sport England’s contribution of £29,000, for The Morley Wall. Entre-Prises Climbing Walls built the facility with main sponsorship from NHS Organ Donation.
