A bouldering wall makes it possible to create a specific training surface in a dedicated area. It is useful when climbers reach a level that requires targeted training, such as for cliffs or competition. Bouldering is an activity in its own right and is the subject of separate competitions. Can be installed alongside a rope climbing wall.

Maximum height: 4.50 m high above the landing surface (mat standard NF EN 12572-2).

Width of the climbing area: 1.50 m minimum.

Configuration: Plan for a variety of angled surfaces, 75% of which are overhangs. All routes must be visible simultaneously to the supervisor. Care must be taken when organising user paths towards the climbing surfaces.

Number of removable holds: 15 / m2.

Number of removable macros: 1 every 1.50 m2.

Support: the bouldering wall can be attached to any support: concrete, cinder block, glued laminated timber, metal frame or self-stabilising.

Landing floor: interior = removable crash pad 30 cm or 40 cm thick (NF P90/312 and NF EN 12572-2:2017).


4.50 m high for a training wall is very high, we recommend not exceeding 3.50 m or 4.00 m high for optimal safety

Plan on using 10 to 15 holds per m2, 1 macro every 1.50 m2 and 1 volume every 6 m2
