Yeh most of that bouldering looks pretty good, but is that flooring thick enough, I notice
a couple of extra mats laying around.

Afraid most of Mikl's homemades have been consigned to history, not considered sexy
enough nowadays. We used to like making up our own problems using the hold names,
playing add-ons or whatever - all of the holds on the summer hill woody had a name
(mostly girls names for some reason). I think it was decided to do away with that
system at St Peters and set problems for everybody because "thats what people want",
but I'd like to go back to the old system on at least a section of the woody - anybody up
for that?
