CRASHPADS / BOULDERING PADS
Crashpads are available for rent through Padadise. This ensures that you always have a pad on hand when you need it.
“Renting a crash pad usually happens when the demand is the highest – in the peak season. That’s why we show exactly what crash pads we have available and with what price. We also show you how many days we have rented the crash pad! So you always know that we are not renting out beaten up crash pads.”
