As the name suggests, Bouldering is the art and science of climbing boulders. By restricting the height of the climbs, the need for ropes and other rock climbing kit is removed. A pair of shoes, a bag of chalk and a bouldering mat to cushion your landing are all that are required to enjoy the experience of moving over real rock. This one day course is suitable for anyone wanting to learn the essential skills of bouldering outdoors in a safe and enjoyable way.
The Peak District has a wealth of bouldering options available, with problems suitable for beginners through to elite climbers, allowing our experienced instructors to choose the appropriate level of challenge for you. Climbers of all standards regularly use bouldering as one of the most effective ways to improve their strength and overall technique and this course is an excellent option for developing climbing technique as a progression from our Beginner Climbing Course.
By the end of the course you should have a good knowledge of the following:
- Safety techniques - mat placement and spotting
- Bouldering techniques - moving effectively and efficiently
- Bouldering venues
- Guidebooks and grading systems
- Ethics and Etiquette
As we are running this as small group sessions, an emphasis will be based on coaching and bouldering technique devleopment.
