bouldering AT the reach

Bouldering is the simplest and arguably the best way into climbing. This type of climbing doesn't involve ropes or harnesses, just you, some shoes, your hands and the wall!

Anyone at any level can give this a go, it's an incredible work out and develops your technique for other aspects of climbing.
