Our bouldering area is made up of three unique walls; an overhung concrete wall with built-in and plastic features, a cinder block wall of inset concrete features, and a new, dynamic wooden wall. A dedicated route setting team is continually setting and cleaning the problems.

Bouldering Wall Rules
Please review the bouldering wall rules before entering the wall space. Understand that climbing is inherently dangerous and the first level of protection is the climber themselves.
Clear the mat
Ensure mat area is free of any hazards you could fall onto: people, objects etc.
Food and drinks are not allowed on the mats at any time.
Remove dirty footwear and store belongings on the shelves provided.
Carefully move out of the fall zones as soon as possible to avoid contact with falling climbers.
Down-climb and step off the wall instead of jumping. Use a spotter effectively.
