ISTU Sport month is continuing! This time ISTU is inviting you to try BOULDERING. 

Bouldering is a a form of rock climbing that is performed on small rock formations or artificial rock walls, known as boulders, without the use of ropes or harnesses. While it can be done without any equipment, most climbers use climbing shoes to help secure footholds, chalk to keep their hands dry and provide a firmer grip, and bouldering mats to prevent injuries from falls.

We will go to try bouldering in a place called Bouldertehdas in Turku. The participation fee is only 6 euro for ISTU member/8 euro for non-member (normal price is 10e per person), which includes:
- entrance fee
- safety instructions before the training
- climbing shoe rental 
The place has all facilities like changing rooms, shower etc, so if you want to refresh after bouldering, take your stuff with. The place has a cafe and a shop for climbing stuff as well. 

There is place for only 15 people, so we kindly ask you to register for the event in advance to get your spot. Participation in the event requires enrollment via link: 
and pre-payment to our back account FI53 6601 0001 0437 93
