What is bouldering?

Bouldering is a type of climbing that takes place on low-height walls, without the aid of ropes but with crash mats underneath.

It emphasises problem solving and technique, while also providing a full-body workout. The perfect blend of a fun mental and physical challenge!

Under 18s climbing independently or under supervision

Under 18s must either be signed off as an unsupervised junior, attend with a bouldering supervisor aged 18+, or book on to an instructed session to climb with us.

Bouldering supervisors are individuals over the age of 18 who have been signed off at one of our centres as a supervisor. As a supervisor you can supervise up to 2 under 18s at a time.

To be signed off as a supervisor you must participate in either a private session or a bouldering intro session, and pass our supervisor assessment. Climbers with previous experience can request to do an immediate bouldering supervisor assessment, without attending a session.

Unsupervised juniors are individuals aged between 14-17 who have been signed off to climb independently; they do not need to be accompanied by a bouldering supervisor. Unsupervised juniors can not supervise other climbers.

To be signed off as an unsupervised junior, you must pass our short assessment.
