ROUTE SETTING WORKSHOPS

At Boulder Planet, we firmly believe that good boulder problems matter. A Route Setter should set them in a way that will help climbers learn how to move better; they should be intentional and educational.

 

To do that, Route Setters need to hone the skills needed through training. So, if you are aspiring for a career in Route Setting or simply want to gain a greater appreciation of how the boulder problems come to be, you can attend Boulder Planet's workshops or certification courses*. These programmes are specially designed to help you learn the tricks of the trade.

Learn more about Boulder Planet's Route Setting philosophy from our Route Setting articles.

Driven by his mission to set boulder problems that have learning value.

"A Route Setter should diversify the type of boulder problems they can set.

When they can do that, they become an all-rounded climber as well."
