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 on a regular basis, keeping the problems new and exciting every time!

GRADING SYSTEM


To indicate the difficulty of the climb, Seven Bays uses a circuit system. Every boulder is identified with a coloured tape on the starting holds to indicate which circuit it is part of. The circuits are designed to encourage progression and skill-learning.
