BOULDERING EQUIPMENT AND BOULDERING MATS
Bouldering is a very pure form of climbing that doesn’t require much specialist equipment. Beyond a pair of rock shoes there are just a few essentials, first and foremost the bouldering mat. Modern bouldering pads use multiple density foams to give the best shock absorption, with very hard wearing outer fabrics to withstand abrasion and puncture by rock. Bouldering accessories like chalk, a chalk bag, a brush and some finger tape will complete the set-up.
