Natural Urban Climbing

The Arkose Group

A French leader

Arkose opened its first “blocpark” at the end of December 2013 in a rapidly developing area in eastern Paris: Montreuil. Today Arkose has centres in 6 towns: Montreuil, Bordeaux, Massy, Paris (Nation), Lyon, and Villeurbanne. The group intends to continue its development in France and abroad.

Arkose is one of the French leaders in boulder gyms and aims to develop 15 new blocparks in France and abroad by 2018.

The Arkose concept

More than just climbing gyms

Arkose invites you to experience urban, ethical, aesthetic blocparks that are more than just climbing gyms. They have been designed around the central theme of bouldering, an entertaining fun, friendly, safe sport that anyone can do! Arkose urban gyms are carefully designed to be friendly and welcoming. They are lively urban environments in their own right which convey the Arkose Group’s key values: environmental responsibility, conviviality, proximity and accessibility.

Bouldering

The new outside

Bouldering was born in France on the rocks at Fontainebleau at the start of the 20th century. From its origins as training for mountaineering, over the years it has developed into a sport in its own right with its own rules and places to practise. Bouldering is a type of climbing done without ropes on walls up to 4.5m in height with thick mats on the ground to break falls. It is a type of climbing that is:
– safe, accessible to adults and children from 3 years old
– progressive and challenging with increasing levels of difficulty thanks to colour-coded routes like ski runs (green/ blue / red)
