WHAT IS BOULDERING?

Bouldering is an incredibly fun sport! 

It is rock climbing stripped to its bare essentials using no ropes or confusing gear.

Your challenge is to climb to the top of each boulder 'problem' using balance, technique, strength and your brain! 
 

Each problem is marked by colour coded holds and follows a sequence set by our experienced team. The problems are graded for difficulty, with levels to suit everyone from complete beginners through to experts. The moves can vary from balancy and technical, through to powerful and dynamic.

Bouldering is an incredibly fun sport! 

It is rock climbing stripped to its bare essentials using no ropes or confusing gear.

The climbs are low enough to the ground so the climbers can be protected by soft gymnastic matting. 

 

Bouldering is an inclusive and social sport. All you need is a willingness to try, and we can supply everything else! People find bouldering to be a great physical and mental challenge.

OUR TEAM

Luke Magill

From: Wollongong

Years climbing: over 20+ years
Fav climbing area: South Central, Nowra
Fav Climb/Boulder: Dungeon Master, South Central, Nowra
What I like about bouldering: 'When you put it all together and the movement just flows...'
Advice for new climbers: 'Don't get hung up on grades, enjoy the process, focus on technique and footwork and moving efficiently.'

Matthew Hoschke

Years climbing: 20 years
Favourite climbing area: It's a big area but I would say the American South West (Utah, Red Rocks, Hueco, Bishop). Otherwise the Grampians. Locally my favourite is Nowra. 
Favourite climb/Boulder: The Wheel of Life (RIP)
What you like about bouldering: The movement and how it feels to climb. I also like boulders with visual appeal and a natural sequence. But the tactile and technical aspects are more important to me. 
Advice you have for new climbers: Enjoy the process. Climbing is so diverse, there is always more to learn. Not every session has to be about performance, it is also valuable and fun to experiment with new beta or practice the basics.
