We were privileged enough yesterday to go and have a look around the brand spanking new - Building One (the latest development from the Arch Climbing Wall team) ahead of the grand opening on Saturday 17th Jan.
The new centre is housed in a stunning warehouse conversion, once the studios of British artists such as Damien Hirst and Charles Saatchi. The new centre; which will run along side the current Biscuit for a year or so, hosts an array of great new routes/problems/areas, has a few homages to original Arch at London Bridge which we are pleased to see and has some really exciting new developments unique to Building One.
The grand opening is this Saturday 17th Jan and is open to all, so if you are free this weekend then make your way down to the site, we'll be there!! It's located just round the corner from the Biscuit, opposite the Shell petrol station on Drummond Rd. Good news is that if you are already registered/have pre-bought climbs with the Arch these can be used.
Keep an eye out on the London Climbing Guide site soon as we will be getting a new section built asap.
