Overview

The Boulder Bunker is a climbing centre in the heart of Torquay. We are open 7 days a week and have something to suit all ages and abilities. Novices to pros, toddlers to grandparents; everyone can have a go. We have everything you need for a workout, or the facilities for a fun day out. You won't even realise you're getting exercise! Bean to cup coffee, a selection of hot and cold drinks and light snacks means you'll be spoilt for choice. Comfy sofas, great staff, the perfect place for an all important birthday party, corporate team building event, or group booking. Come and have a go! No experience required, no equipment necessary - no excuses ;)
