Alongside roped climbing, bouldering, or low-level climbing without ropes over a crash-mat, is a distinct area of climbing in its own right. Climbs are known as problems, with each move between handholds designed to test your body and mind.
Harrogate Climbing Centre offers a dedicated bouldering area. With over 55 problems, between VB to V8+, across 10 circuits as well as a circuit training board, there is something for all ages and abilities.
So there is plenty to do even if you don’t fancy taking to the ropes. Anyone from age 5 can come and have a go at bouldering, but under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult unless they hold a Blue, Green or Yellow Card.
