Welcome to Ascend Indoor Climbing Gym and ‘Bouldering’ facility on North Holme Road, Louth in Lincolnshire.
We seek to encourage participation, inspire passion and discover potential. “Climb Higher, Get Fitter, Have Fun” We are the only BOULDERING/climbing facility within a 20 mile radius of Louth, and the only venue with dedicated Bouldering facilities within a 40 mile radius. We believe that the people of our community deserve access to one of the fastest growing sports, and with Bouldering seeing its Olympic debut in the Tokyo 2020, there is no better time to make this a reality. After a year of planning, designing, research and training staff we are scheduled to OPEN OUR DOORS on the 23rd and 24th November.
About Indoor Bouldering
Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. Leaving behind ropes and harnesses and just using climbing shoes and a bag of chalk over safety mats, your challenge is to climb short but tricky Bouldering “problems” (a route, or sequence of moves) using balance, technique, strength, and your brain. You don’t need experience or lots of expensive kit to have a go – making it really easy to get into if you’ve never tried it before. The climbs are high enough to be exciting, but not so high that they’re hugely intimidating. Using safety mats means that the risks of falling off can be managed, and leaving the ropes behind means that you are free to concentrate on the climbing, not the equipment. It’s just you, the wall, and your friends on the ground egging you on. Bouldering gives a full body workout and keeps the mind sharp as you learn to read the holds and solves problematic routes. It offers an exciting alternative to the routine of other fitness regimes through ever changing routes to solve and overcome, and while Bouldering has an accessible entry level it also has an expansive difficulty curve for those wishing to train to an elite level.
