What is Bouldering?
Unlike top rope climbing which requires a rope and harness, bouldering is climbing stripped down to the essentials. At Sender One, all you’ll need is a pair of climbing shoes and chalk if desired. Our boulder routes are designed for climbers at every skill level with short, challenging problems. Additionally, safety mats are placed beneath all of our bouldering walls to help keep climbers safe.
When bouldering at Sender One, please keep these tips in mind for a fun, safe bouldering practice:
- Use balance, technique, strength and your brain when bouldering
- Plan ahead as you climb
- Be mindful of those climbing around you
- Warm up and cool down on routes that are below your skill level
- Challenge yourself
Vertical walls require more technique and balance to complete a climb. When climbing these walls look for footwork and creative beta to get to the top.
Whether you are climbing on overhand, vertical, or slab, topping out is a part of climbing that is necessary within all terrains. It may look easy at first as you are about to finish your climb, but know that it can be quite tricky learning to pivot over to the top where balance and technique is key.
Overhang is the terrain that unlike balance, requires all the power and strength they have to hold their body weight up. Keep in mind, technique is still necessary for these particular climbs.
