Route Setting

Route Setting at Three Wise Monkeys

We pride ourselves on our route setting, and have built a great in house team of qualified setters, with a variety of climbing backgrounds and styles

When do we set?

Our route setting takes place only when the centre is shut- so no impact driver noise or closed sections to disrupt your visit. We strip routes and set routes and problems on weekend evenings (with every 5th weekend off) and we finish the sets on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

Route Setting Schedule

We display the current route setting plan, with which sections and colours are coming down next outside of each climbing area

Becoming a Route Setter

We're always on the lookout for aspirational route setters. We use the RSA2 training courses to qualify in the access skills required, and that's the entry point for our in house training programme. We are currently exploring running boulder setting courses so that keen regular customers can have a go at setting with us - watch this space.
