Adults Bouldering

What is Bouldering?

Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. No complicated ropes or harnesses, all you need is climbing shoes. Your challenge is to climb short but interesting bouldering “problems” (sequences of moves) using technique, balance, strength, and your brain!


Watch the video below to get a visual idea of why you should give it a go!


The beauty of bouldering is that every “problem” has its own solution, and to successfully climb it you need to figure it out. Depending on your body shape and personal strengths, your solution could be different to the next person’s. If you’re tall, you might be able to reach the next hold more easily on spaced-out problems but find yourself hindered when the route takes you into corners or grooves on the wall.

You don’t need experience or lots of expensive kit to have a go – making it really easy to get into if you’ve never tried it before. The specialist climbing shoes are available to hire from reception or buy in our shop.


How do I get started?

Just visit our Pre-register Page, [link]watch our Bouldering Induction video  and come on down. If you don’t have time now you can also do this at reception at Kendal Wall. It’s that easy! You can be climbing within 20 mins of walking in through the door.


What if I’d like some instruction to get started?

You can book a Bouldering Induction Plus.

This is with an instructor who will guide you through what you need to be aware of to minimise the risks and to help you make the most of your bouldering session.

These cost £20 and include your entry to the wall and shoe hire.

If you would like to be able to supervise juniors when bouldering, the Bouldering Induction Plus is a great way to get yourself signed off as a bouldering supervisor. Just tell your instructor at the start of the session that you want to be a Bouldering Supervisor and we’ll do the rest.

Can I climb with an Instructor?

Of course you can. Just give us a call or check out our range of instructed sessions.


I’m loving bouldering! How do I improve my skills?

Book a private coaching session for yourself or a group of mates. A great opportunity to learn some key skills that will improve your balance and movement and enable you to make real progress.

We also offer Social Evenings with informal coaching from an Instructor.


Bouldering sounds great fun but I would like to learn the ropes and climb the big walls!
