We are a small but mighty bouldering gym in the the heart of Romford, Essex. We knew we would make a great space, solid routes and banging coffee. However, what we didn’t anticipate was the amazing community that would be created. Whether you are new to bouldering or been smashing blocs for years, all levels are welcome. Come taste the famous brownies, great coffee and 5* routes.
Bouldering is a great functional exercise that challenges both your physical strength and agility. As well as your problem solving abilities in a social environment while having fun. If you’ve never climbed before, we recommend you attend one of our free induction classes. Please ask a member of staff at reception upon arrival. All climbers will need to watch a safety induction video and fill out the correct waiver form. You can either do this by clicking the tabs below or at our reception. Then you can book a 2 hour session, click here to book.
