Getting Started

Bouldering is an exciting type of rock climbing which is normally done at a low level, without ropes, with an emphasis on technique and power. As the name suggests, this type of climbing is usually done on boulders or smaller rock outcrops. Our state of the art Indoor Bouldering Centre will provide you with a superb platform to start climbing and the necessary tools to take your climbing to the highest level.

We have a few ways for you to get bouldering at Red Spider, we’ve laid them out in the 3 easy options to help you get started.
