Climbing (or not) in Berkeley

Berkeley Ironworks Climbing & Fitness Gym is in a giant old industrial building. They have a 45 foot lead wall, 14,000 square feet of climbing terrain, 2,500 square feet of bouldering and 100 top & lead ropes. What that means for our sketch group is that there were hundreds of climbers all over the walls! It was a figure drawing paradise! The staff and climbers were very friendly and happy to explain techniques and equipment to us. It was great fun to watch and sketch but I think I will be staying on the ground.
