What is Bouldering?

Bouldering is the purest form of climbing. No ropes, no harnesses, no rubbish. Just you, some climbing shoes, a little chalk for your hands...and at Climb Newcastle a big crash mat below you to land on.

Bouldering is incredibly easy to get into, you already know how to do it, in fact you probably learned many years ago when you were in nappies... how embarrassing for you! Humans have a natural instinct to climb things and Climb Newcastle is the perfect playground to harness your vertical energy!

Our walls go to a (regulation) height of 4.5m. That's high enough for climbing challenges of all types and levels of difficulty but low enough to be protected without ropes or any other special equipment. This climbing above crash mats is known as bouldering. Simple and fun and you're gonna love it!
