Evolution Climbing Centre to Close

(c) Steve Collins - & 
Evolution Indoor Climbing Centre in Crowborough, East Sussex will sadly be closing their doors for the final time on Sunday 29th January 2017.

Evolution has been around for many years and was the 'go to' indoor wall for the area at the time.  Used by many as a facility to train throughout the winter and many beginners as a means to take their first steps into the world of climbing.

Undoubtedly, as other climbing facilities have sprung up in the area, the impact will have taken its toll.  Including the growth of other shops and online businesses.

Evolution is very much part of the Tullis family business legacy which started selling rock climbing gear to the local climbers back in the mid 50's.

The Tullis family has also over the years been a major contributor to sandstone as a whole and particularly Harrison's where both Terry and his son Chris have both served as wardens, and through doing so have very much left their mark in sandstone history.

We certainly wish them well regarding any future plans they may have!
