Bouldering Rules

What is Bouldering?

Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its raw essentials. Leaving behind ropes and harnesses your challenge is to climb short but tricky bouldering “problems” (a route, or sequence of moves) using balance, technique, strength, and your brain. Bouldering is a great physical workout, using muscles all over your body – not just your arms. Core strength is a real focus, as is flexibility. But unlike some other forms of exercise, it’s so much fun you might not notice that you’ve had a big workout – until you wake up the next day!

Bouldering Rules

The following rules have been outlined to maximize your safety and enjoyment at Lanta Paintball. Feel free to query any rule that you do not understand.
Minimum age: 10
Read and sign Liability Release prior to using the Bouldering Wall.
Listen to safety briefing before using the Bouldering Wall.
Do not alter any aspect of the wall in any way.
Everyone is responsible for their own safety.
Climbing holds can come loose or spin, use sound judgment.
Report any wall defect or loose holds to Management immediately.
Children (under 13) MUST be directly supervised by their parent or guardian.
Do not climb directly below or above other climbers.
Climb within your limits.
No climbing on top of wall structures.
No smoking, eating or drinking whilst on the Bouldering Wall or Crash-Mats.
Only climbing shoes or bare feet allowed on the Bouldering Wall.

The soft crash-mats under the bouldering wall are designed to provide a more comfortable landing for climbers falling from the bouldering wall. Broken and sprained limbs can happen on this type of bouldering wall despite the soft landing. Uncontrolled falls are likely to result in injuries to yourself and others.
Although our bouldering wall is an artificial environment, the risks are no less serious than climbing outside on a crag or mountain. There is an additional risk that bolt-on holds can spin or break.
Please note that all hand / foot holds are checked by Lanta Paintball staff daily.
