Idea

Boulder Hut is an indoor climbing centre brand, opening its first bouldering centre in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. Bouldering is a shorter, sharper variation of rock climbing, done without ropes, over lower heights & safety matting. We aim to open a new centre every 2-3 years.

There are no indoor bouldering centres in Cheshire West and Chester & the nearest dedicated bouldering centre is over 30 minutes drive from Chester.

Inspired by the best European climbing walls, and housed in a 17,000 sq ft industrial unit (contract tbc), Boulder Hut will be one of the largest in the UK with over 250 different climbs available, and have separate ‘Boulder Zoo’ and 'Boulder Play' areas for our younger customers, as well as offering elite training, coaching, kids clubs and parties. There will also be a cafe serving locally sourced, quality produce, and an extensive shop to get kitted out in.

Our recent local media release was shared 897 times and we have 476 followers on Facebook & 728 followers on Twitter, and counting!

The UK climbing industry is expanding with the number of indoor walls going from 300 to 400 in the past 5 years alone, and climbing will be included in the 2020 Olympics for the first time. Bloomberg recently observed that in the USA, "Indoor rock-climbing is a quietly expanding exercise industry ripe for a Crossfit-like explosion" - we believe the same is true for the UK market.
