...Why Rhino?

Rhino is the name of what is probably the most famous boulder in the world! There is no hardcore boulderer without this iconic Rocklands 7b+ boulder on their wishlist! How cool is it???

Moreover, who can deny that our Rhino is a symbol of the strength and determination that helps so much in solving bouldering problems? Frankly, it was an easy choice!

By the way, climb this problem and you will feature on our Rhino Wall of Fame, and get the next month of climbing for free!!! Train hard!

We also feel a connection to this endangered animal, that is why we have pledged to devolve 1% of our profits to the Wilderness Foundation for the protection of Rhinos in South Africa every year, so you can feel you are also helping this cause every time you come climbing here or sip a beer in our café.

behind the team

These 2 guys, psyched to get the first ascent of our amazing wall under construction, are (the less amazing) Thomas and Henning, founders and directors of Rhino Boulder.
Henning is a professional in the climbing industry and is the beating heart of the company. He has been managing climbing gyms for a decade and has been coaching elite athletes all the way to world cup level!
Besides that, he is a very strong climber (when he is not broken), he loves to fool around and he makes the most amazing salads!
Thomas is an engineer with a professional background in management and a passion for.... you guessed it... climbing!
Originally from Trentino (the Italian region with Arco and the Dolomites!), Thomas has been climbing all over, from China to Yosemite, from the Rocklands to Font... and he has probably ticked more than half the routes in Portland!
