Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw form. Leaving behind your ropes and harnesses giving you the opportunity to go free style, safe in the knowledge the safety mats will catch your fall. Bouldering requires balance, technique, strength and will work your brain to conquer the routes set out for you.You don’t need experience to give it a go – making it really easy to get into if you’ve never tried it before.
We advise you wear something that allows for a lot of movement and you feel comfortable, general sports gear is great. Climbing shoes are VITAL. If you do not have climbing shoes they are available for hire.
When you come for your first climb, you’ll complete our induction process which will help you understand how to use the centre safely. If you want further guidance, you can book a Taster session which gives you some coaching with a member of staff. A lot of people learn to climb simply by watching others, or joining more experienced friends, and we run a beginners course if you’d like to really get to grips with the basics under the watchful eye of an instructor.
Each problem is set in a single colour from start to finish. There is a label next to the first hand hold on each problem which lets you know the grade of that problem. Advice on the grades Vb, Vb+, V0, etc can be obtained from reception or by asking a member of staff.
