The Wilderness Shop Box Hill

With one of the best bouldering locations on earth on our doorstep it’s no surprise that the sport has really taken off. And while the Grampians might be a bit too far for a day trip (for most of us anyway), the proliferation of bouldering walls, training boards, and modern training methods means that there are a lot of fit a powerful climbers around these days. The Wilderness Shop stocks a wide range a bouldering mats in a variety of sizes and thicknesses. We also keep on hand quality bouldering brushes, clip-sticks, bouldering bags and of course chalk.



DMM Highball Pad


DMM Spot 2 Pad

The Highball is a hinged style mat with a great landing area. The heart  of the mat is a thick layer of open cell foam sandwiched between two  high density foam layers. This gives a good even distribution even when  from falling on uneven or rocky ground.

The Spot 2 is the ultimate lightweight hinge style pad:  firm enough to  provide good protection, yet extremely compact and easy to carry


Prana Bucket


DMM Edge Bucket

A fleece lined chalk compartment protects hands, a double-drawcord  closure protects against spills on the hike up, and brush holder pockets let you protect access to the crag. A velcro stash pocket holds keys  while you climb.
