What is bouldering?
Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that emphasizes balance and strategy over brute strength, making it accessible to people of all skill levels and physical abilities. It involves climbing short (3 – 4.5 m), challenging routes without ropes or harnesses; to ensure safe landings, the ground is cushioned with 40cm thick, soft crash mats. Due to their large number of routes and holds on the wall, Wall Walkers Bouldering is an excellent place to start learning to climb.
When climbing, focus on using your legs and feet for stability and strength, and take breaks as needed.
Bouldering is a fun and social activity, with a friendly community that supports and encourages each other.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I fall? Falling is an inescapable part of climbing. At Wall Walkers Bouldering, 40 cm thick climbing mats extend 2 m from the most extreme point of the climbing wall to ensure they catch you no matter which climbs you’re attempting, this is to reduce the risk of injury during a fall. All their mats and the wall structure comply with the latest Australian Standards for Artificial Climbing Structures (AS 2316.1.2:2021).
The way in which you fall is also important and every new climber at Wall Walkers will be shown the safest possible way to fall during the initial induction. This method is in line with the latest Australian Standards as outlined in Appendix E, Safety guidance E.3.2 Accidental Falls.
