THE BOULDER BARN
INCLUSIVE, NOT EXCLUSIVE 

Brought to you by Taste For Adventure. We are proud to announce the re-opening of the Boulder Barn, our new climbing facility in Hereford. This latest instalment to the Taste For Adventure Family is all part of our visionary leaders’ legacy, the late Brummie Stokes MBE BEM. Along with his wife Lynn, Brummie dreamt that adventurous activities should be available to all, regardless of age, fitness and finances and hence founded the charity ‘Taste for Adventure’ back in 1991.

What is Bouldering? 

Bouldering is climbing in its simplest form. By eliminating the need for ropes, knowledgable belayers, harnesses and other equipment, climbing becomes simplified to movement in the vertical plane. With this freedom, climbers can commit completely to a small number of moves, practice them close to the ground and pursue their true limits.
