At Activate, the walls are covered in holds. Each colour represents a route or bouldering “problem.” When you’re on a route, you can only put your hands and feet on holds with the same colour.  Then follow the route up the wall to the highest hold of that colour, and that’s the finish. This is what makes climbing in the bouldering room fun. When you look at a wall and see over a hundred holds on it, you challenge is to figure out how to climb a route that might only use six. To finish the route you have to figure out creative ways to extend your reach and build your grip strength to hang on to small holds. Sometimes you finish a route on the first try, sometimes it takes 20 tries or more. But each time you climb you get better and that progress is addicting. Many of you already know this but I know that my first time at a climbing facility, I had no idea what was going on until someone explained it to me. Eventually, after a couple months or so, what happens is you’ll find that you’ve climbed all the routes within your skill level […]

SANTA Arrives at ACTIVATE

November 21, 2017 by admin in Uncategorized 0 comments
On Saturday 18th of November, Santa arrived at Activate Waterford to make sure that all was in place for all the families that will be visiting him over the next number of weeks. We managed to sit down with Santa (With the help of Mrs. Claus) to ask him a few questions about being at Activate and also the build up to Christmas. Activate Waterford – “Its great to see you again Santa”! SANTA – “Its great to be back in Waterford and its great to be here in ACTIVATE”. A.W. – “You first visited Activate back in July, that visit was to make sure you had enough room for your log cabin… How has it worked out”? SANTA – “I couldn’t be happier”! (even though Mrs. Claus’ living room is bigger than my cabin …he chuckles) “It really is an amazing experience. Myself and Mrs. Claus walked through the whole thing on Saturday with Ryan Hunt & Bernard Deegan”. “We started at the bottom of the amazing staircase that is dressed with beautiful lit garlands, we reached Santa’s archway and proceeded through the golden gates, where we were visited by Mr’s Claus Living Room (this is where the families […]
On the 22nd of October, Activate hosted the first round of the Youth Climbing League. With over 50 kids participating the event was a great success. A big thank you to Damien O’Sullivan from Mountaineering Ireland, for his route setting, and guidance before, during and after the event. Not forgetting ACTIVATE’s climbing instructors Rachel & Catherine for all their hard work on the lead up to and during the event. But the real winners on the day were the “kids”! An amazing turn out and fantastic support shown by their families. With “Team Activate” featuring in the majority of the results, the future looks extremely promising for climbing in Waterford.
