Youth Climbing

FUTURE ROCK STARS

Think your youngin’ can send with the best of them? Sign ‘em up to give our pro-level wall a go!

Bouldering is the simplest style of climbing. Without the encumbrance of a rope, the climber is free to practice the sport at it’s highest level. The object is to complete boulder problems, which requires a serious blend of gymnastic ability and grip strength.
