We want to unite likeminded people into the Wildflower community. Therefore, we built a place where we can train together, hang out together and share our passions and ideas. A place where we can express ourselves and inspire each other to do what we want to do.
In The Netherlands, there is a serious lack of high-level training facilities for climbing. We have a vision to fill that gap with a National Training Center specified for all climbers who are serious about improving their abilities and want to maximise their climbing potential.
Our gym based in Leiden is run by the Wildflower Climbing Foundation and functions completely not-for-profit. This is a place where we can realise our ideals together with the community, without being bothered or held back by commercial interests.
The wildflower training center has everything you need as an experienced climber to train for climbing. Our gym exists of five main areas:
Spray Wall – A massive 45 degrees overhanging wall, full of holds of all shapes and sizes
Comp Wall – A 20+ metre headwall of international competition wall standards, filled with new school boulders varying from 6b up to World Cup Final level
Campus Board – Together with Crimptonite climbing we created a campus board and a fingerstrength training area to perfectly fit our wishes
Fitness Area – An area specified for both general and climbing specific strength and conditioning training
Lounge and Connect – We are a community and we’d love to offer you coffee or tea, but NO, we are not a bar! We don’t believe there is a place for this in a hardcore training centre. Our lounge area is a place where you can hang out after climbing and connect with likeminded climbers.
