Bouldering in Berlin

January 2nd 2018 - Roos de Boer

A nice capital tot save for last: Berlin with multiple bouldering gyms and a great new year's party. We went climbing at Bouldergarden, as it was close to our accommodation and announced tot be open during the weihnacht (holiday times). Yes: there were plenty of options to climb or boulder here: Ostbloc, Subbloc, Berta Bloc, and one we also visited Bright Site. I wish we were in Berlin more often!

Bouldergarden is nicely constructed, on the ground floor there is the first boulder area, lead climbing area, and kids playground, plus in theorie back the sauna. On the second level another boulder area with top out, on the third level the training room and changing rooms. A Nivea atmosphere!

Climbing here was a bit of a challenge: there are only 5 levels, not linked tot font or v scale. A sixth colour is a mix is any of the 5 levels. The colour correspond to the card attached to the start holds, rather than the colour of the holds. Tricky.

The routes are diverse and fun, a good and complete bouldering gym in Berlin!

Bouldering is a fun, spectacular branch of sport climbing. Without ropes you climb to a maximum height of 4.5 meter. Because of the thick safety matress, falling down is not a problem and does indeed happen regulary.

What is the boulder tour?

Bouldering is a creative sport. A part of the challenge is to solve the puzzle that the route boulders have set up for you. This makes it very interesting to visit other gyms than just the one that is closest to you. Other wall shapes, other holds and volumes and above all other route setters will make this an interesting experience.
