Our Vision

Community, sustainability, inclusivity and social responsibility.

These four things are the cornerstones of how we choose to do business here at Boulder Co.

Born from the vision to create world class Bouldering, Fitness and Cafe facilities in New Zealand, Boulder Co. was envisioned to not only break from the norm in scale and wall design, but also in our approach to business.

Our gyms are designed to foster the next generation of climbers, while providing support, a fantastic climbing experience, and a social hub for users of all skill levels and backgrounds.

Boulder Co. gyms are designed and managed with our community in mind.

  • Cafe and Bar:
    We include a cafe and bar within our gyms, to allow you to use our space as a social hub, rather than just a place of exercise and climbing. Our beer is supplied by local breweries, who share our business philosophies.
  • Local Products:
    Boulder Co. works with local designers and small business owners, to provide you with locally produced New Zealand products. We try to sell and promote as many local businesses and products as possible. 
  • Wall Build and Design:
    Boulder Co. gyms are designed and built with love by the team at Climb Craft, a New Zealand owned and managed company, based in Christchurch.

Our philosophy is to reduce, reuse, and recycle..

  • Reduce:
    Tired of buying chalk and chalk balls sold in single use plastic? So are we. That’s why we have created our own branded chalk, wrapped only in paper.
    All the products we import are requested in as little packaging as possible, while our chalk balls and tape are shipped and sold loose, directly to you, without the need for plastic packaging.
  • Reuse:
    We have incorporated a scoop system for climbing chalk.
    Want chalk? Pay a discounted rate and have it scooped directly into your chalk bag. Easy as!
  • Recycle:
    Boulder Co. takes recycling seriously.

    Please ensure you use the numerous recycling stations found around the facility.

Boulder Co aims to be as inclusive, approachable and affordable as we possibly can.

  • We do not have a mandatory climbing shoe policy allowing you to climb in your own clean closed-toe shoes.
  • We strive to create boulder problems for all levels of ability. Whether you’re a absolute beginner wanting to give it a go for the first time, or a seasoned climbing athlete, we have climbs for everyone!
  • Our memberships are remarkably simple and affordable, with short minimum terms, no sign-up fees, no cancellation fees, and multiple ways to pay.

New Zealand is our home too. Let’s make it great.

  • Our staff are carefully selected and trained to provide the best safety, climbing and customer service experience possible.
  • Boulder Co. offers discounted rates to charities and not-for-profit groups to ensure everyone gets a chance to experience bouldering.
  • We are already working closely with organisations to host events and competitions, to support worthy initiatives throughout New Zealand.
