Next March, a new bouldering hall will open on Grote Marktstraat in the city centre. “Bouldering is becoming very popular,” De Klimmuur’s Peter Kok tells his Den Haag FM. “This place is a very good place.”
Bouldering (named after the rock from which bouldering originated) is climbing relatively close to the ground. The indoor bouldering wall is approximately 2-5 meters high. Bouldering is done on thick pads that cushion the impact of a fall. Bouldering routes are often called “problems”. Boulder problems often focus on short sequences of powerful movements.
The Grote Marktstraat bouldering hall is the fourth highest climb in The Hague.
