Mission Cliffs New Bouldering Pads
Touchstone's pooh-bah, Russel Olsen just upgraded the bouldering area at Mission Cliffs. Utilizing a new flooring system, Olsen removed the old padding and placed in an entirely new set of padding. The new system utilizes 9 inch foam to make for a more cushy landing when jumping or falling off of the great boulder problems at Mission Cliffs. The system is also entirely seamless, which helps prevents rolled ankles and other falling injuries.
Touchstone has employed the system at Metal Mark, the new gym in Fresno and is working out the finite details of the crash pad system for future bouldering areas. Touchstone hopes to expand the Mission Cliffs bouldering area soon. As we posted last summer, we have acquired the space adjacent to Mission Cliffs to do a remodel that will include a completely new and expanded bouldering area. Unfortunately this project has been delayed in the building department. The nature of the delay has to do with the type of building that Mission Cliffs is classified as, and because of this our landlord has to be the one to work through these issues with the city. We continue to work with him to try and get this project moving forward, but at this point it is still stalled. This is an extremely exciting project for us and we remain strongly committed to make this happen despite this lengthy setback.
In the mean time, stop by Mission Cliffs and check out the new foam!
