City Bloc is owned and ran by Ben a former British Team member. Ben left competitions to focus on creating climbs at the top level of national competitions rather than competing in them. He gained his qualification as a national competition route-setter in 2004 and has been setting ever since. Ben is one of a very small number of people in the UK to hold this qualification and his skills can often be seen being put to use at other climbing walls around the country as lots of people want to experience his creations. Many City Bloc customers think Ben’s climbs at City Bloc are the best around and travel from far and wide to try them out.
