WHat is bouldering?
Bouldering is rock climbing without the ropes, heights, and hassle. It’s physical problem solving. Train your muscles without the pain and get fit without the repetition!
Distinctly simple, it’s a fast growing, social form of climbing. Come and see what all the fuss is about.
How does it work?
At 9 Degrees, every climb, or ‘problem’, has been designed with it’s own solution in mind - the challenge is figuring each climb out! We have 9 levels of difficulty, each represented by a colour. Colours are set up as gym wide circuits with climbs varying in style so within the same grade you will find climbs focusing on balance, agility, strength or coordination. There are climbs to suit every level of fitness (including absolute beginners!).
What do I need to bring?
Nothing! We have rental shoes and chalk available for hire but a pair of sneakers and some clothes you don't mind working out in are all you need.
Bouldering walls are 4.5m at their highest, constructed over specialised cushioned flooring that ensures every landing is a safe one. For more detail on climbing and falling in a safe manner please visit our page on safety.
