When bouldering outdoors on the local sandstone, it is essential to protect the climber appropriately by using bouldering pads.
Chimera now offers a Bouldering Pad Hire service. We have four pads available to book online.
Pads are hired out for the whole day and should be returned that same evening. Please ring the centre on 01892 457 294, if you would like to extend your booking or if you have any queries.
Bouldering pads will only be hired out in good weather. Please ring the night before the booking if the forecast is for rain, however light or intermittent. Sandstone can take longer to dry than other types of rock. We are committed to following the Southern Sandstone Code of Practice and bouldering when the rock is wet will lead to further erosion.
