The Touchstone gyms are always looking to make improvements on their facilities. As part of the company's dedication to making a better climbing environment, the walls over at Great Western Power Company are a new shade. The formerly orange walls are now white.
Russel Olsen, Touchstone's pooh-bah, explained the change. "We are stuccoing the walls because the original coat was applied too thin in an attempt to achieve very smooth walls. The benefit to re-stuccoing is a stronger finish. We are adding up to 3/8"- 1/2" new material heavily fortified with bonder and fiberglass to eliminate any future wearing away of the wall from smearing. No more wire lath will show through also."
Stop by GWPC and check out the improvements on the great bouldering wall!
