Always wanted to try Bouldering but didn’t know what to do next?
Bouldering is a form of rock climbing practiced close to the ground, eliminating the need for ropes and other expensive equipment.
Bouldering often involves sideways traversing as well as vertical climbing. The focus is on hard problems and technical moves that are needed to succeed in conventional climbing. Difficult moves can be attempted again and again until they are achieved, improving strength and skill rapidly. Many climbers boulder on a regular basis to keep in shape.
This course is an introduction to the art of bouldering indoors. More than just a lesson in technique, the keyword for this course is improvement. Whether you are just starting out, or have hit intermediate plateau, this course will help you to avoid the pitfalls that hinder progress and will arm you with the knowledge to space and structure your training for optimal improvement.
