The sport of bouldering is all about problem solving. It is known to improve stamina, core strength and finger strength.
Most of the physical benefits are fairly obvious – however, there is a tremendously positive holistic impact on climbers’ well-being, particularly for young people.
Scientific studies on climbing suggest it builds confidence, problem solving skills, core strength, coordination, motor skills, trust and teamwork. It can be done by almost all ages as the climbs are easily set for a person’s skill level.
On top of all the individual benefits, climbing in a thriving centre like the Hub is a way of building community. As a great metaphor for life, climbers build their individual skills through experience, striving to better themselves as they work together through encouragement and mentoring.
