What is Bouldering?

Powell River Climbing Gym
Our bouldering area (pre-mats)

Bouldering is a simple – and extremely fun – form of climbing in which the climber solves short “problems” on an unroped wall (13 feet high in our facility). Foot-thick gymnastic mats break falls.

It requires no special equipment (beyond climbing shoes and some chalk) or technical climbing know-how. It can be done without a partner.

It is also the most social styles of climbing because it encourages people to gather around a boulder problem attempting to solve it and cheer each other on.

What is Top Roping?

Our top rope wall

Top roping is the typical roped climbing that you probably think of when you think of climbing gyms. Our facility boasts a modest top rope wall.

In this form of climbing, you use ropes through an anchor, a harness, and a “belay” buddy to keep you safe as you climb up a larger span of wall (close to 27 feet in our gym)
