So you’ve enjoyed indoor bouldering so far, and you’re getting more confident on the wall with each problem that you complete. It’s summer though and the sun has been shining (hopefully!), and you’re wondering why you’re still inside gripping plastic? Well, now’s your opportunity to head outside and find out how bouldering gets its name! Although the ‘boulders’ are only man-made, the range of problems together with the lovely Country Park setting will hopefully give you a very small taste of what the original alpinists at Fontainebleau got up to in their early days (though hopefully in warm summer sunshine!).

Unlike the regular Saturday bouldering slot, this event is intended for those who have had some experience of bouldering before. This is because of the more difficult nature of climbing without colour-coded holds, topping out each climb and the need to down-climb using the easier descent routes. As you can make up your own routes however, as long as you know how to land safely, you are welcome to come along. Also please note, as an open-air unsupervised venue, rock shoe-hire will not be available so please bring your own. If you don't have any, a close-fitting pair of trainers will probably suffice.
