HERE'S A BRIEF LOOK AT WHAT TO EXPECT

BOULDERING

BOULDERING

AUTO BELAY

AUTO BELAY

Bouldering is the simplest form of climbing, requiring nothing but appropriate safety pads to protect landings, and something to climb.

Since there are no ropes in bouldering, every fall off the boulder results in the climber falling to the mats below.

Bouldering routes, or “problems,” are typically very short, requiring a handful of powerful moves to complete.

Because there are no ropes or equipment involved, bouldering is ideal for those looking to climb on their own.

Auto Belays are a great way to experience some of our taller wall climbing without the need for an experienced partner operating a rope belay system (a form of climbing known as Top Rope).

The climber uses a carabiner to attach the belay system to their harness. As they begin to climb, the webbing they're attached to retracts back into the device at the top of the wall.

If the climber falls, or if they reach the top and let go, the auto belay  magnets kick in to provide a smooth descent back to the ground, where the climber can try again or disconnect.
