Climb Newcastle News: New Orange Problems

New orange problems
There's been some great feedback on last week's pink circuit which seems to have hit a nice spread of difficulty. We're going to be adding to this range next week with a reset of the fantastic green holds.

Meanwhile our orange tufas have dried out and, put together with the oranges we've had stored in our basement for the last 6 weeks, now make up a new circuit of problems in the 6b-7b+ range, filling nicely where the reds were. There's all the usually funky grooves, slabs, jumps and mantles and at the top of the band a cellar-board style problem on screw-ons up the 30 degree board that will make ticking the whole circuit very difficult indeed.
