General Knowledge

What is Bouldering?

Bouldering is a style of rock climbing that occurs close to the ground on outdoor boulders or shorter walls in a climbing gym.

For many, bouldering indoors is the most accessible way to get into climbing. It’s one of the best ways to fall in love with the sport: it’s fun, doesn’t require a ton of technical equipment plus can be done by yourself.

The only pieces of gear are crash pads that soften your landing when you fall, a pair of climbing shoes and chalk bag.
