First time climbing at VauxEast?

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!

Still got questions or want a bit more advice ahead of your first visit? Get VauxEast’s FREE Guide to Climbing delivered to your inbox, packed with tips, tricks, and a deal or two…

How do I get started?

Climbers over the age of 18 are free to climb independently from their first visit to VauxEast.

New climbers simply need to watch a short induction video and fill out a pre-registration form, which you can do either online or in-person (we’d recommend online to save time on the day!)

Then all you need to do is turn up, check in at reception, and climb! Easy.

Plus, opt-in to the LCC newsletter during registration and enter into a weekly draw to win a £25 Arc’teryx gift voucher!
