The new sport of bouldering makes its big debut at the Olympics this year in Japan 2021.
Bouldering is a type of free climbing that is done on small rock formations or climbing walls no higher than 4.5M (15 feet).
In bouldering, climbers can practice specific movements at a safe distance from the ground.
This can be done without the need of ropes and harnesses but of course with crash matting for protection.
A top tip from the UK team: ”Learn how to climb down when you are at the top, instead of just dropping onto a mat”.
We offer a good range of bouldering mats, crash pads, crash pad mats and kid's climbing holds (stones) all at low, good value prices.
