Bouldering Wall


A bouldering wall is a type of rock climbing wall designed specifically for the practice of bouldering. Bouldering is a branch of rock climbing which involves climbing low rocks and boulders. It is often designed to be highly technically challenging, so that while the climber may not go very high, he or she will have to be physically fit and very skilled.

For the past year CCE-Peconic Dunes Camp has been working with the Suffolk County Parks Dept on installing a bouldering wall at Peconic Dunes County Park. On July 14, 2009 the project was finally completed. Here are some before and after photos...

Before...not much to look at, huh?

Much better!!!
