BLOCS Is a Unique Way to Break a Sweat in Edmonton

Bouldering differs from traditional rock-climbing in that its walls are much shorter, created to emulate something closer to a horizontal rocky plane than a sheer cliff face. For this reason, you don't have to harness up or deal with any suspension ropes in order to safely boulder. So when BLOCS debuted as a bouldering-only gym near your Edmonton apartment last fall, it invited everyone to come inside, no experience necessary.

Now a few months later, the popular gym still draws crowds for active indoor fun. If you want to learn more about the art of bouldering, you're always invited to get started with a beginner course on the subject. You can also expand your knowledge with an intermediate class. However, everyone is welcome to simply start climbing and enjoy the fun and convivial atmosphere at BLOCS.
