Learn the basics of Routesetting

Routesetting is a mysterious, difficult job that most climbers think is much simpler than it actually is! BUMP Bouldering is happy to host Boulder Planet's routesetting workshop program for the second time, bringing in the experience and knowledge in from a longstanding tradition of competition and gym setting in Singapore and beyond.


This class is aimed at climbers who have never tried routesetting before.

Get Familiar with the equipment

Handling an impact driver up a ladder is much more challenging than it looks! But don't worry, we'll break it down for you and you'll probably learn about more than a few tools you never knew existed.

Learn about Holds & Volumes

There's more to it than just knowing what they are called. Learn the basics of how to choose the right hold for the move.

Decision Making

Figure out how to make a move make sense and give it a logical flow. Begin your journey of thinking like a routesetter.

The Art of Forerunning

Throwing plastic on the wall is only the beginning, learn how to have the conversation of making a problem purposeful, move by move.
