Boulderhal Bruut

Ever heard of bouldering? No? This sport has gained tremendously in popularity in recent years. Bouldering is the climbing of short routes, otherwise known as boulders. No protection materials or ropes are required, just a big crash pad below you. Sounds like the perfect challenge for a real daredevil! This is what they offer at Boulderhal Bruut in Breda. In this climbing hall you’ll train your entire body and every climb is like solving a puzzle. Both beginners and advanced climbers can boulder besides each other.
