Some great comments on this thread, that I want to comment further on - maybe a little later. But yes Stephen, transitions from plastic rock will help in some way and I think some of the gyms and even climbing shops are trying to get on board with this. Something we can definitely work on a little more. 'Cos there are more gyms coming next year... Good practices are an absolute must. The numbers as always, create the bigger problems.
