Sorry, did this before I was told I couldn't
I asked for permission to bring my sketching group to a local climbing gym last week. The owner prevaricated and asked many questions over several days before just spelling it out that in the past photographers had creeped out the climbers. I get it, but I am disappointed as it would be a good venue for sketching. The climbers move fairly quickly, but the positions are somewhat repetitive and with the 20m height of the walls there is lots of scope for dramatic exaggeration of perspective.
