What is bouldering?
You need no ropes, harnesses or other equipment to do it, and there are no scary heights involved! Anybody of any fitness, ability or strength can enjoy bouldering; there is something in it for everyone.
A great work out.
It is a fantastic way of keeping fit and strong, but without putting too much pressure on your body. Watch as you quickly develop and continuously set yourself new heights to aim for.
Just as when you were young and used to climb trees or swing around on the climbing frames, bouldering is a natural, and addictive, sport.
Climbing and bouldering is an extremely relaxed and sociable pastime. It is a great way of meeting new people and staying fit, whilst having fun at the same time.
Some people look to challenge themselves to climb as hard as possible, others just look to enjoy the freedom of movement. You will find a complete mix of abilities from beginners, children, adults, families, and world-class climbers all enjoying themselves.
For the family.
Parents and children can climb together, or if you prefer Mums and Dads, you can just chill reading the paper and having one of our tummy-filling cakes, whilst the little ones wear themselves ragged having a brilliant time on our walls.
