BOULDERING EXPLAINED

Bouldering is one of the easiest ways to start climbing. You don't need a rope or a harness or even a partner. It involves climbing up a 13-foot wall, using coloured holds. You then climb down or jump onto mats at the base of the wall.

It provides an exciting and challenging workout, both mentally and physically!

PROBLEM SOLVING


Beyond the obvious physical challenge, bouldering provides a mental challenge that will get you hooked and coming back for more. Each boulder is set using a specific colour to indicate which holds are part of the boulder. Climbing a boulder problem involves "solving" the sequence of moves you will need to execute to reach the top. 

Boulders are reset every week at BoulderHouse Langford on THURSDAY, keeping the problems new and exciting every time!

GRADING SYSTEM


Climbing at BoulderHouse is designed around a set of 8 colour coded climbing circuits. Each circuit includes 5 to 6 problems and is designed to provide climbers with a varied set of challenges from technical slab climbing to powerful overhangs and everything in between.

By encouraging our community to progress through each complete circuit, our vision is to help every climber, at every level, develop a well-rounded set of skills. To keep you motivated and challenged in new ways, we reset a section of the wall weekly. From our beginner yellow circuit to the advanced pink circuit, there is something for everyone.
