Bouldering wall in Essex
If you like keeping fit and problem-solving, bouldering is the sport for you.
Bouldering is an exhilarating and sociable sport where climbers attempt low-level routes without ropes or harnesses. Instead, protection from falls is provided by pads and crash mats. Bouldering “problems” are usually much shorter than rock climbs and often include a sequence of difficult moves. This sport helps improve your climbing power and technique as well as is great fun.
Increase flexibility, finger, core & forearm strength
Climbing, or bouldering, is a great sport for building core and functional body strength alongside flexibility. You don’t need to be able to perform bodyweight exercises like pull-ups to be a good climber, but climbing will help you develop in this area.
Great for those who want to try climbing, but aren’t a fan of high heights, bouldering offers the best of both worlds. And while the climbs can be a lot more technical than their sport climbing and traditional counterparts, it’s a sport growing in popularity, and for good reason!
