Giant Climbing Wall To Open At Truman Brewery

Fancy climbing up a giant crisp? The finishing touches have been made to this monster climbing wall in Ely's Yard, Old Truman Brewery in Spitalfields. The promoters reckon it's Britain’s tallest outdoor freestanding climbing wall. It's also shaped like a massive crinkle-cut crisp, as part of a promotional stunt for a new Walkers line. The wall opens tomorrow (30 August, 12pm-8pm) and will stick around until Wednesday 5 September (Sun-Wed, 12pm - 8pm), assuming no one eats it. The snackish ascent is free.

Why do you link to Facebook pages that are inaccessible to non-members?

An outdoor climbing wall. In East London. To promote crinkle-cut crisps. That's the most ridiculous advertising nonsense I have seen in a very long time. Somebody just made a lot of money out of a stupid idea.


Just went for a climb, staff was very nice and friendly and above all, gear and climb are for free! It will also host a speed climbing event on sunday, be fast & be furious!


They should be building things like this permanently not just as some PR stunt

Golly, I hope the brewery wasn't supplying bevvies for the climbers before they started! Alcohol and climbing - not a good combination, I should think! --Jean
