Getting Started At Faultline

Everything you need to know before your first visit

What is bouldering?

Bouldering has no ropes no hassle and endless freedom. Bouldering is the act of climbing a short route without ropes, its climbing made simple.

How does it work?

Boulder ‘problems’ are designed by our crack team of routesetters with a combination of climbing holds to create a 3D puzzle for your mind and body to solve!

Each problem has a set colour of holds for you to follow to the top of the wall, start and finish holds will be marked by coloured tags. It's up to you to figure out how to get to the finish.

Difficulty of problems will be dictated by the colour of the tag attached to start and finish holds.

Like a video game for your body

Climbing is so much more than just a way to get to the top of the wall. Everyone's climbing styles and strengths range wildly, its our mission to set problems for everyone. Whether you're tall, short, strong, flexible or springy there's a solution for you!

Faultline is the perfect space to work together with friends or other climbers to solve the problem and improve your climbing experience.

Is it hard?

Bouldering can be as hard or as easy as you want it to be.
We have problems for everyone ranging right from beginner to professional.

Our problems have a style to suit everyone - some focus on balance and finesse of movement, others focus on raw strength, some even focus on coordination and dynamic movement. However you love to move, there's something for you!

Children love climbing. But unfortunately is unsafe to have children climbing in the same area as adults.
