The Bismarckturm is one of the many bouldering places, scattered around the Ruhrgebiet. It is situated in a park right in the center of Bochum. Therefore, you’ll be pleased with a short approach, some cafes and even a hospital in the very neighbourhood, in case you should need one.
The bouldering takes place at the basement of the tower. There are three sectors with roughly three meters heigth. Beeing a tower basement, bouldering is dominated by slabs, slopers and crimps. The joints are still in good shape so you mainly will use the features of the sandstone rock itself. Regarding grades, this is more of a beginners spot.
To avoid problems, please do not use chalk and tickmarks!
