If you're on our "Bouldering [...]

What are auto belays?

2017-07-01T10:48:07+00:00

An auto belay is an automatic belay device that eliminates the need for a human belayer. The auto belay is attached to the top of the wall taking up the slack as a climber ascends and controls the descent when the climber reaches the top or in the event of a fall.

What is top roping?

2017-10-05T15:33:45+00:00

Top roping is without doubt the safest and easiest to learn of the two methods used in indoor climbing where a rope is required for safety (the other being “lead climbing”). While top roping indoors (here at The Boardroom the top rope walls are the green wall) the rope which is always in place, runs [...]

What is tying in?

2017-06-24T14:08:35+00:00

In most indoor climbing centres this must be done using the popular and well recognised climbing knot, the figure of eight. Despite it being a fairly easy knot to learn and get right, as [...]

What is belaying?

2017-06-24T17:26:16+00:00

Belaying is the climbing term for controlling the (safety) rope whilst the climber climbs. Climbers will more often than not, take it turns as a pair. One of them climbing whilst the other belays. Then they swap. So belaying is an essential skill all climbers must learn, and learn correctly. When belaying the rope passes [...]

What is bouldering?

2017-07-31T11:58:31+00:00

Bouldering in essence is the simplest and purest form of climbing. Just you, your climbing shoes and some chalk. No need for a harness or rope! Thankfully you’re never that far from the ground which is covered with thick foam matting. Without the harness and rope it also means it’s a much cheaper way to [...]
