Frequently Asked Questions

What is bouldering?

We have a whole page devoted to this one, visit it here.

What equipment do I need?

None! Most people using the facility will bring their rock shoes, chalk and a chalk bag or bucket. If you don’t have them yet you can rent or buy them at reception. Because you are protected by thick crashmats there is no need for ropes or harnesses.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothing that allows for ease of movement is fine, gym clothes are a popular option. Closed-toe footwear is essential and we have climbing shoes available for hire ($5) that help make the bouldering easier.
For your safety, rings and loose jewellery need to be stashed away before you climb.

How strong do I need to be?

Our facility aims to have a range of challenges suitable for all, from people who have never tried climbing before right through to elite athletes.

Can kids use the boulder wall?

Kids are great at bouldering! To help keep them safe, those under 13 years need to climb under the direct supervision of someone 18 or older.
