Volunteers crowdfunding new climbing wall near Stroud


A group of climbing enthusiasts is crowdfunding to build a climbing wall near Stroud.

The Climbing Commons are looking to raise £37,800 by this Thursday, May 23rd, to build a pilot wall at Unit 22 at Merrets Mill on the A46 between Stroud and Nailsworth, sited between the Coffee Lada and Fresh Standard Brewery.

“The Climbing Commons are a bunch of mums and dads, climbing enthusiasts and community members from the Stroud Commons with a vision to make climbing affordable and accessible to more people,” explained Carl Ranscombe of The Climbing Commons.

“This initial pilot will be a small, membership-only wall, which we will use as a testing ground to trial different ideas, set up systems and understand best practices in a controlled way before launching a larger campaign for a public gym. 

“The Climbing Commons project hopes to galvanise interest from local climbers of all abilities. In doing so, developing ideas, testing and implementing them as a community-owned and run initiative. No individuals involved will profit from the initiative, to get the project this far has been driven by volunteers giving up their time for free.

“They are currently looking to hit a £37,800 crowdfunding goal by next Thursday 23rd May. This will enable them to secure a venue, build and operate the pilot facility for a minimum of 12 months.”
