Durham Climbing Centre is a large indoor rock climbing centre where all levels of climber are catered for; whether beginner or pro there’s a challenge for everyone!
What is Bouldering
The style of rock climbing offered at DCC is bouldering. Bouldering is a popular branch of rock climbing that enables climbers to practice specific moves at a safe distance from the ground. Thick safety matting throughout the centre provides a safe landing surface for climbing without the use of ropes and harnesses.
Boulderers work on climbing problems which often consist of an intricate set of moves until you reach the top of the climb. Problem solving skills are required as you work out how to reach the top.
We are thrilled that sport climbing has recently been announced as an Olympic Sport for the first time. All three disciplines of climbing will feature at the 2020 Olympics: Bouldering, Lead Climbing and Speed Climbing.
One of the fastest growing sports worldwide; there’s no better time to try it out!
