Bouldering 101 Tue, Jun 12, 2018
If you rock climb then most likely you 'Boulder'. Bouldering is a different form of rock climbing which only requires: a bouldering pad also called a 'crash pad', climbing shoes, climbing chalk which is used to keep your hands dry and tactile, and of course a boulder! It also allows for faster and easier access to climbing since there is less gear involved overall, while also providing good practice for when you do take on the harder and longer rope climbs. So if you're looking to get into climbing, bouldering is a great start! This photo which includes me and my fiancé Sarah (still odd to call her that heh), was taken just this past weekend near Lake Tahoe and shows you a good example of what bouldering is all about!
