Night Bouldering at Burnley

I agree, that would be no good. It's a bit reminiscent of the "Approved Government Destruction" Thread - it would seem to pale into comparison with street lamps burning into mid-morning, and said lamp at Burnley warming the Yarra all night long.
Ah, perspective. Shouldn't stop us all from doing our bit though. Baby steps

I totally agree with that sentiment. At the end of the day Burnley is a free training venue for anyone to use. Surely it could not be too hard to take your own lighting if you want to climb at night. Itís interesting that people want to use a free venue but complain as soon as the reality of cash is mentioned.

Perhaps we need to stop complaining about Burnley, be grateful for what we have and enjoy Burnley for what it is. FREE!

Im not complaining. im happy to fork out cash for lights if others do. I'll put $100 towards it. only need
another 7 people now. :-)

p.s. - i already bought and donated new holds to this wall at the start of the project.

a lot of people & organisations gave time, money and support to get burnley up and running. Furthermore
burnleyís ongoing viability depends on the continued support and goodwill from a number of parties. All of
these need to be consulted/considered, as well as the marginal (and debatable) benefit to the climbing
community before we should even think about putting lights up.

$800, access to powertools and a cheap electrician doesnít give anyone the right to act unilaterally on
behalf of the above.

i come home from uni 20minute bike ride no climbing partner and enjoy spending a few hours with the once quoted (by a newbi named kim) "soothing traffic noise"... and she's right...!

just a random thought, if there was night lighting, would this also encourage drunks, or non-respecting people to sit and drink and possiably damage the wall???

just my 2c

The Grampians affects the revenue of the commercial gyms! The survival of commercial entities is their responsibility, if they continue to provide the quality venues that they do there survival will be no problem. Variety is far better for the sport than removing options. e.g. Lactic is great for working hard problems where you can actually climb to failure, (mats). Burnley provides longer endurance routes which remain unchanged over longer periods. The Grampians provides the motovation for the whole lot.

Neil put me in for 50 bucks.
Let their be light.
