Try bouldering at The Climbing Hangar

A lot of people who'd get a kick out of climbing don't even make it through the door. They're afraid of the risks and have a list of reasons why they'd be no good before they even begin. But we're here to tell you that you can give it a go, and what's more, you'll probably be better than you thought.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE (and you don't need to do pull-ups)

Bouldering is a hugely accessible sport. Unlike other forms of climbing, there are no ropes, and all you need to get started is a pair of climbing shoes (which we provide for free) and a short induction.

Still, many newcomers can feel a little intimidated on their first visit. So let's bust a few myths, in case you're still on the fence:

  • You're not the only newbie. Around 50% of our new customers have never climbed before and they come in all ages, shapes and sizes.
  • You don't need upper body strength. Your legs do most of the work during your early climbs, and you'll develop the strength you need as you practice.
  • Everyone's facing the same challenges, whatever their level. Balance, height, strength, flexibility and downright fear are just part of the experience.
  • It's not all about training for climbing outside. Over 50% of our climbers have never climbed outside. So there's no pressure. Indoor climbing is an activity in its own right.
  • Everyone's been where you are - and they're all on your side. The competition in bouldering is with yourself and no one wants to see you fail.
  • It's always better together. Bring a mate, chat to people, seek help from the crew. There's a reason bouldering is one of the most sociable sports; you'll progress faster with friends

With all of that in mind, are you ready to get off the ground?
