Bouldering is a type of rock climbing but without ropes. Bouldering is normally only done for very short climbs which happen over a crash pad or bouldering mat to prevent serious injuries. However it can be done at the base of large rocks or buildings and public architecture. Bouldering climbers rarely go above 5 metres off the ground to reduce the risk of injury. If a climber goes above 7 metres it is considered to be free-soloing or soloing. Bouldering is popular all over the world but the most popular sites are over the USA, the Fontainbleau just outside Paris in France and Canada.

As with all insurance policies, it is important to ensure that all areas of your holiday are included within your insurance policy not just the bouldering. To check that this is the case always remember to read the terms and conditions fully. If you have just taken out a policy and realise that it doesn’t fully cover your requirements don’t worry. Remember you have a 14 day cooling off period with any insurance policy you take out. It is a good idea to look at all different types of insurance policy to make sure it fits with your holiday as, if you go on more than one caving holiday, it may be a good idea to look at an annual policy instead of a single trip policy.

What our Experts say

"Are you a thrillseeker? Many standard travel insurance policies will not cover more adventurous sports or activities. If you want to be able to bungee jump, or take a hot air balloon ride or just take part in a spontaneous activity that may be a little on the riskier side then opt for a travel insurance policy which includes or allows you to add on additional cover for more adventurous pastimes. That way you are more likely to be able to say yes!"

Sally Wilson Moneymaxim Insurance Expert

It is important to look at all the policy documents for caving insurance to ensure they fully meet your requirements. With many travel insurance policies, bouldering can be covered by paying an additional premium.

Things to consider when bouldering

Bouldering is not considered that dangerous because climbers don’t climb to a great height and have bouldering mats and spotters to break their falls. But it is important to ensure that all the safety equipment is well maintained and in good condition. To decrease the likelihood of falls, it is important to ensure you are wearing proper close fitting rubber climbing shoes.
