Be Bold and Boulder

The Bunker

Come and join us at Torquay’s first and only dedicated Bouldering Gym. Located within walking distance of Torre Abbey Sands, and Torquay Town Centre, and on major public transport routes,
The Boulder Bunker is easily accessible.If you’re new to bouldering, we have the best venue to get you started. If you already have bouldering in your bones, you won’t be disappointed.

For those who don’t know what bouldering is, it’s ok, you don’t need any experience, and equipment is
not necessary. Bouldering is a lower level form of climbing, without ropes, with large foam mats beneath you. It is a much less restrictive form of climbing. Harnesses are not used in bouldering.
It is a full body workout whch is sociable and exciting.

We have three rooms – The first is our main hall, where we have a bright and spacious bouldering wall dominating the room. The wall is no more than 4.3m above the matting. Every route is graded from V0 to V6+, and we reset frequently to keep the bouldering fresh. Our Warm up & Training Gym provides you with everything you need to build strength, stamina and fitness.

There is an impressive systems board, a campus board with small, medium and large campus rungs, Beastmaker finger boards, a peg board, adjustable rings, muscle up bar, pull up bar, weights, and there is fitness equipment and more. There really is something for everyone. Fresh whole bean superior gourmet coffee, Hot Chocolate, Other hot drinks, Protein drinks, soft drinks, and snacks can be purchased in the cafe, with free WIFI offering you the chance to relax and refresh yourself. Grab yourself a comfortable sofa and enjoy the view of the climbers.

Come rain or shine, whatever your ability, come and join us.

I went there for an evening boulder session and had a great time! Aaron was super welcoming, the routes were creative and you could feel the passion for bouldering. Thanks! ✌🏻

Went for the first time yesterday (4 adults and a 5 year old) and it was so much fun for all of us. Really nice place to spend time and the climbing was challenging and super fun. Aaron was really patient with us and took a lot of time to help us improve which he didn't have to. Really good at what he does and we all appreciated it

Very welcoming gym! Grading is HARD but so much fun. Aaron took the time to offer me beta, give me tips, and was a massive help the whole time - can’t wait to go back!!

Really nice jim you have everything you need for training and various levels of good climbing routes and really nice staff if u want to go climb definitely have a visit 10/10

Great climbing gym, staff are friendly and attentive, routes were excellent and varied, suitable for all abilities. Looking forward to our next visit when we get back to Torquay.

Very friendly and challenging climb

Came in a couple of weeks ago and Aaron was super enthusiastic and amazing! The setting was fantastic 👏 loved it and will be returning

Fantastic time at boulder bunker today. Great hour of entertainment for the children made even better by the chap who was running the place today. Issac was so enthusiastic and his encouragement helped my children to progress. We'll be back .

Great way to spend a couple of hours for adults and kids. Nice relaxed vibe, friendly and attentive staff. No pretentiousness at all from the more advanced climbers who were happy for us to watch what they were up to and give us some tips as well. Will definitely be going again.

great staff and great fun

Just had my 6 year old sons birthday. Kids from 4-6, climbed, played games, rolled and laughed. Cat booked us in, friendly and patient, Aaron was the kids instructor, clear on instructions especially rule #1 😀, the climbing, games and coffee were all good. The other parents liked it too, and a couple plan to book their child's parties there. Jay explained the party, with climbing a UV climbing and music - grab tour glow sticks, face paint and enjoy. Thank you all xx

Just had my 6 year old sons birthday party here. From enquiry through to tonight, Jay, Cat and Aaron were helpful and patient. The kids are tired, it was great fun for all! Recommend the place/team.

We had a really great evening at the Boulder Bunker. This was my first time bouldering and Aaron gave us a great introduction to the equipment and a few tips and tricks to help us along the way, highly recommend visiting.

Dropped in while visiting Torquay and had a great experience. Aaron was super knowledgeable and very helpful with showing us beginners how to climb and sharing his top tips

Great place for a training session of just a casual climb! Very helpful staff!

Great bouldering centre! Had a fantastic day. This activity is for anyone who can move about, they're is something for all ages, the staff were fantastic - very knowledgeable, approachable and helpful. There is no time limit (aside from opening hours) and good coffee to boot! Give it a try today and thank me later 😉

What an amazing place! First time climbing and really enjoyed it. Will 100% come again

Had a great first session at the wall. Good variety of interesting routes for me as an amateur and very friendly staff who are keen to aid with technique

The staff are super friendly, and there's always a brilliant atmosphere. Whether you're an experienced climber or a complete novice, you'll be happy here, I promise.

Took our son who is 13 ,1st time he has tried Boulder bunker.we were meet by Aaron who is the manager,carnt praise him enough,he was amazing with our son ,made him feel really confident and gave him amazing instructions . had him climbing and jumping in no time. Something I didn’t think he would do . Thanks Aaron he had a brilliant experience thanks to u😄

What a hidden gem! Nice variety of activities and very friendly staff

Sarah Edmonds

Our son had a great 1:1 lesson with Aaron today. It was great to see them both begin to form a strong and trusting relationship (which is rather important when climbing). Sam was so proud of his achievements today and these were made possible by the confidence and self-belief that Aaron encouraged. With thanks to Jay, too, for welcoming and supporting a new recruit. It seems that one member of this family has caught the climbing bug; hook, line and sinker (or should that be holds, rope and anchor?!) Looking forward to next week already.

Tony Daly

Great time thank you everyone had fun

Great place for climbing loved it here

As a boulder that likes to train for climbing as well as climbing, the facilties here are second to none in the UK. There are many pieces of equipment that look like they have self developed. If your in the area I recomend you check it out

It's a good place to spend an hour with the kids

The best place in Torquay

Oli Pfaff

Very well equipped bouldering center! Thanks guys!

Friendly staff, they help you a lot, affordable prices

Romy Ann Noel

it's a great place to practise and work out. ..... the personnel are friendly and helpful. ...the coffee is great! Romy

Friendly staff and not intimidating if you're a beginner and just want to have a go. The members of staff are always happy to show you around and teach you the basics.

My son went there tonight

Friendly and fun. No expert on climbing but great hour while it was raining.

An alternative to the normal gym. Fun and fitness for the whole family

Sara Williams

Just went today kids luvd it will be back x

Really great climbing gym! Don't let the size put you off - it is a fairly small gym but has some really great boulder problems that will keep you occupied for plenty long enough; there is also a really good training room with a host of gear. I'd recommend chatting to Seb - a really attentive and helpful route setter at the gym; he has some really invaluable insights into the different routes and will spend the time to guide you through. The place is very lovingly worn in - what I expect and love about proper bouldering gyms. Oh and also: top notch coffee and hot chocolate! Tom & Aggie

Ross Evers

A great environment to climb and have fun at any age.

Ali Stoneman

Brilliant climbing centre. I’m NOT a fan of gyms so this is a great alternative. They are very laid back, while they are busy the atmosphere is relaxed and quiet. They are also AMAZING with my son who struggles in a lot of environments. He gets to push himself and climb safely with out the competitive edge or structure he struggles with with many other sports

I enjoy going here because the people are friendly and never make me feel silly for being a beginner, there's a good range of different difficulties of climbs, a relaxed seating area for having drinks and snacks afterwards and I always feel great after I've challenged myself.

Great staff, great facilities.

Had my drandaughters 8th birthday party here today she and her friends had a brilliant time thanks to you guys party for all ages I think 🌝

Very good place to go bouldering! Mats are good and supportive to your feet, good bouldering walls

Bradley Avron

it's harder than it looks, which is great for a workout and challenge. It's aslo bigger than it looks in the photos.

Good for all ages, very reasonable.

Old school climbing centre it's a little dated but a great friendly feel to the place I took the kids on a rainy day they loved it, in fact so did I I was all over it.

Brilliant way to keep fit and have fun at the same time. We went a few times in the space of a couple of weeks and plan on going back when we can. Our granddaughter loved it and she has asked a couple of times when w are going to go again. Not sure why is not more popular.

It was fun. It was hard work though because had sandals on and forgot trainers so did it in bare feet but didn't spoil it that much.

The owner is very friendly and offers no pressure advice on membership and gym usage. Definitely not a corporate machine designed to milk your funds. I have returned with my children for the kids club and the man who runs it was patient and made it fun. A well thought out and built climbing area and training room. It suits all ages and abilities. Run by climbers for climbers (and wannabe climbers!)
