About
The Boulder Bunker is a Climbing Gym in the heart of Torquay. We are open 7 days a week and have something to suit all ages and abilities. Novices to pros; everyone can have a go. We have everything you need for a workout. You won't even realise you're getting exercise! We are not a play cafe, so children have to be closely supervised by their parent or guardian. Bean to cup coffee, a selection of hot and cold drinks and light snacks means you'll be spoilt for choice. Cafe seating, great staff, the perfect place for a birthday party, corporate team building event, or group booking. Come and have a go! No experience required, no equipment necessary - no excuses ;)
Duration: 2-3 hours

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited 'The Bunker' Bouldering gym whilst on a hiking trip. Great little venue, with boulders to suit most levels, they have an excellent training room too. Staff member Aaron was very professional and friendly 👊. Really enjoyed our visit.

My daughters and friends had a great time here. Aaron was really welcoming, gave a great tour and safety advice and was so kind and helpful showing them how to do certain climbs. Will definitely be back soon.

Definitely will start coming regularly!

Came here with a group of 4 hyperactive 9-year-olds. Aaron was an absolute gem in keeping them in check, patient but assertive, and super helpful! We are absolute beginners and Aaron was super helpful and friendly to us and everyone in the gym, helping with routes, techniques, and climbing ideas. His personality must rub off onto everyone, as everyone in the gym was friendly and put up with the horde!

The gym has plenty of variation and will serve as our training hub for the foreseeable future!

Dropped in for a curiosity climb. As I'm a local I was instantly devistated I had not come sooner... This is a proper old school gym. If your used to TCH then this will be a proper shake up. I am told you can even suggest routes! Great vibe and I'm just trying to make time to get back.

Visiting Torquay for our family holiday. Choose The Boulder Bunker as sons currently interested in climbing lots. I didn't climb but Husband and two sons (8 & 11) took part. Stayed for over 2hours as they enjoyed themselves so much. Was a bit unsure at first about it free solo for the children but was very quickly put at ease. Eldest son was unsure at first about taking part but Aaron (staff member) was very friendly and allowed him to watch first before making up his mind. Aaron was very calm with us and calmly dealt with a situation when the youngest got himself stuck on the ledge, and talked him through, how to safely get down. With this, the youngest climbed up and down 4 more times by himself without getting stuck. Aaron was approachable, gave praise and encouragement and tips for a better climb. We would definitely go back again when we visit Torquay in the future.
Thank you The Boulder Bunker and Aaron for giving us great memories.

I visited with my ten year old grandson who wanted to have a go at climbing. We were greeted by Arran who kept an eye on him and gave encouragement and coaching tips. My grandson is now completely hooked and can't wait to go again. What a super introduction to a great sport. Thank you Arran. Brilliant!

Couldn’t be more impressed with the quality of the service and facilities at the Boulder bunker! Lots of sanitising stations still available and staff wearing face masks too. I had a great first bouldering session, so exhausted after an hour but managed to get so much done and would have loved to have stayed longer if my body could take it. Aaron went out of his way to help me and show me techniques on the walls, which really made the whole experience! Can’t wait to go again!

Visited today for the first time with my 5yr old son and we both had a blast!
Completed our induction and then got straight to having some fun, many thanks to Aaron for talking us through everything and spending some time with us.
Lived in Torquay all my life and never knew the place was there, but glad I’ve found it now!
The place has so much potential and it’s great to support a local business, will be returning.
Recommended!
