WHAT IS BOULDERING?
Bouldering is a form of rock climbing where a person will climb no higher than 4.5m without the aid of ropes.
Most climbers use climbing shoes to help secure footholds, chalk to keep their hands dry and to provide a firmer grip, and bouldering mats to prevent injuries from falls.
CLIMB WEST MELBOURNE IS THE FIRST AND ONLY DEDICATED BOULDERING GYM IN ALTONA AND MELBOURNE’S WEST.
Years ago, Bouldering and Rock Climbing were classified as extreme sports. Only “dangerous people” and “experts in the field” would take part. However, every year more and more people are trying these adventurous sports, which are now seen as “fun” and “trendy” ways to increase fitness and overall health. Bouldering has gone from being extreme to mainstream, and these gyms are now even becoming more of a “social hub” rather than just a place to simply climb. The sport will make its Olympic debut in Tokyo 2020.
Our Walls have been manufactured by City Wall. We have an arch, free-standing boulder, slab and a variety of angles to climb on!
We have selected our holds carefully to ensure there is a great range among all climbing grades. We have selected holds from 360, Kilter, Flathold, Cheeta and Kingdom.
