About Bouldering

First time climbing? No problem. Let’s start by going over a few basics.

First off, there are two main types of gym climbing: bouldering and roped climbing. Fountain Valley is a bouldering facility so that is what we will cover!

Bouldering is climbing done on relatively low rocks, or “boulders.” Climbers who boulder don’t use ropes because the top of the bouldering routes are low enough for climbers to jump down. That said, remember that some of the boulders in our gyms are very tall (18 feet) so be careful about what you decide to climb. Only climb as high as you are comfortable.

Bouldering is a great way for climbers to hone their climbing skills and build strength. You do not need a climbing partner when you are bouldering, but can always find a fun group of people and a great bouldering community.
