GENERAL

  • What is Bouldering?

    What is Bouldering?

    Bouldering is rock climbing stripped down to its purest form. Climbers only need their climbing shoes and chalk to get started. Forget the harness, rope, and other complicated and expensive gear. Bouldering is simple, yet complex at the same time as climbs are short and intense. We are sure you will find a fun challenge that involves problem solving, strength, technique, flexibility, and persistence.

  • How are the boulder problems graded?

    How are the boulder problems graded?

    We will be setting problems using our very own Boulder Movement Scale, which starts from 1 all the way up to 30. If you’re more familiar with the V scale, it’s from V0 to V10 on walls ranging from slab to 40 degrees overhanging and we have climbs for first-timers or seasoned veterans!

  • How often are the boulder problems refreshed?

    How often are the boulder problems refreshed?

    We refresh our climbs every week (at least 14 new problems) to ensure you always have a new challenge every visit.

  • What is the recommended age?

    What is the recommended age?

    – Climbers under the age of 13 must be supervised by their parents at all times and would require parental consent.

    – Climbers between the age of 13 to 18 are recommended parental supervision and would require parental consent.

    – Climbers above the age of 18 can climb independently.

  • How does a fitness zone help me?

    How does a fitness zone help me?

    We believe that strength and conditioning complements climbing and help you achieve your goals. Climbing tends to heavily work muscle groups that pull, and we wouldn’t want to forget about those push muscles! With a well-equipped fitness zone, we hope our community will not just grow stronger as climbers, but as people.

    Are there any terms and conditions I should be aware of in the BM Citizen membership contract?

    2. There is a $100 cancellation fee if the membership is cancelled within the 12-month or 6-month period depending on contract.
    3. Alternatively, you can find someone who would like to take over your contract, and continue it through to the full 12/6 months. We will charge a $50 admin transfer fee to create a new membership card, account, payment method and contract for him/her.
    4. An administrative charge of $20 will be levied for late payments.

You can terminate your membership after the full duration has been completed at zero cost.
    6. If you wish to freeze your membership, Boulder Movement will levy a $30 administrative charge to freeze the membership for any period, up to a maximum of 2 months. The membership contract will be extended accordingly by the same duration. There is a minimum period of 2 months between each freeze.
