Boulder Shack

Comments

Good to go big! I've done dozens and dozens of signage jobs over they years, but this one was a bit more involved...

This is a 5ft x 2 ft parking sign for our good friends at Boulder Shack Climbing Gym in Southampton. The 3D buildings, road and parking bays were all drawn from scratch and give a good sense of the parking layout of this small Industrial Estate.

Oh and the office mascot shown here really helped out...
🏔 The Boulder Shack Colouring Book 🖍

I’ll be heading down to Boulder Shack Climbing Gym Christmas Market tomorrow! 🎄

I’ll be selling special edition Boulder Shack colouring books featuring 5 of my original drawings of everyone’s favourite climbing gym! ☺️

I’ve also got tonnes of Boulder Shack and New Forest prints available, perfect for framing!

Come down and say hi! 👋

A Community Climbing Wall

Boulder Shack Climbing Gym is an incredible bouldering centre and community space based in Southampton. With over 12,000 square feet of climbing, the centre first opened in February 2017 and was made possible following a mass crowd-funding campaign and the amazing efforts of our local climbing community.

The main centre contains a huge variety of bouldering problems which are regularly updated by our team of excellent route-setters and by the public on fun community route setting evenings. On top of this, we also host weekly junior climbing clubs, adult coaching classes, yoga and fitness classes.

Our awesome junior performance climbing squads train several times a week and compete in local national and international competitions.

The amazing Boulder Shack café serves a delicious range of hot and cold drinks, toasties, locally baked cake, healthy energy bars, smoothies and milkshakes.
