Maybe the best climbing gym for bouldering in Iberia (Now Closed)

3 03 2009

(Now Closed)

This Thursday (5/03/2009), and after a long fasting, “BoulderArea” will finally open. I have already visit some climbing gyms in Europe and this is the best I ever been to train for boulder! It is not very big but the quality and diversity of both the walls and the climbing holds make it a very good tool to take the portuguese climbers to the next level.

The next link takes you to Alexandre Páris’ photos of the place (taken from this year’s first boulder competition, that was held there).

How to get there

It is located in Odivelas, North of Lisbon, and the best way to arrive there is by Subway (in portuguese is called “Metro”). With this transportation, take the yellow line, almost to its end, and leave in the “Sr. Roubado” station. After that, it’s just 5 minutes walking.
