Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. No complicated ropes or harnesses, all you need is climbing shoes. Your challenge is to climb short but interesting bouldering “problems” (sequences of moves) using technique, balance, strength, and your brain. Every “problem” has its own solution, and to successfully climb it you need to figure it out. Depending on your body shape and personal strengths, your solution could be different to the next person’s. If you’re tall, you might be able to reach the next hold more easily on spaced-out problems but find yourself hindered when the route takes you into corners or grooves on the wall. You don’t need experience or lots of expensive kit to have a go – making it really easy to get into if you’ve never tried it before. The specialist climbing shoes are available to hire from reception or buy in our shop. The climbs are high enough to be exciting, but not so high that they’re hugely intimidating. Using safety mats means you can manage the risks of falling off. Leaving the ropes behind allows you to be free to concentrate on the climbing, not all the equipment. It’s just you, the wall, and your friends on the mat encouraging you on.
