GRADES

What are our climbing grades?

Bouldering’s grading system can sometimes feel like a puzzle, right? You might find yourself grappling with a particular grade or hitting a plateau, no matter how diligently you climb. Or perhaps you’re curious about how grades are determined but not sure where to start.

Understanding the grading system and how to effectively use Toplogger can be your key to unlocking these mysteries. Let’s decode the grades together and climb higher!

REMEMBER GRADES ARE subjective

Do not let a grade or a color turn you off from trying a climb!

& colour divided boulders

In our gym, we use the Font grading system for a clear and straightforward approach to bouldering.

Each level is uniquely color-coded, allowing climbers to easily identify routes that align with their skill levels. Additionally, we feature ‘jokers‘ – special climbs that offer an engaging and unpredictable challenge. Jokers are boulders that do not follow our normal color-grading combination, so you can try boulders of any grades in any color!

These elements provide both a fun and educational experience, catering to climbers who are keen to develop their skills or simply enjoy a diverse range of challenges.

FAQ

About grading

The start of our boulders is marked with 2 white tags. These mark the 2 (or 1) starting hand holds you must start on.

You always finish matching on the last hold on the boulder you are climbing. DO NOT top out on the top of the wall.
