Bouldering is a relatively new sport, this dynamic and spectacular discipline of climbing is verry accessable. bouldering is done on short walls up to 4 meters, and is often called the sprint amoung climbing. You don't need a rope or a harness, a thick mat underneath the walls makes for a soft landing. Power, thechnique, dynamics and soupleness are trained in a creative motivating way. Bouldering is a full bodey work-out and therefore a cool alternative to the gym.
It is also a very social sport, the problem solving aspect of bouldering creates easy inetraction amoung boulderers on how to solve a boulder ''problem''. It is therefore an easy way to meet other people.
