So what is bouldering?
Bouldering originated in Fontainebleau in the early 20th century as a means of preparing climbers for their first outdoor sessions on mountains and cliff faces. It has become a discipline in its own right over the last few years.
Bouldering, then, involves climbing walls of about 4 metres in height with no safety equipment other than climbing slippers.
In outdoor practice, climbers ensure their safety with the use of a special mat, or crash pad. In our facilities, the floor of the entire bouldering area is covered with a thick safety mat, to allow you to climb without danger!
All year round between 8 am and 12 am.
