>What is bouldering?
Bouldering is a form of free climbing that is performed on small rock formations or artificial rock walls without the use of ropes or harnesses.

>What is the difference between bouldering and rock climbing?
bouldering requires no equipment to get started.
hold and footholds are way smaller which means it has different techniques, styles and body positions. it also means that you have to strategize and think!

what do you anons think about bouldering?
>>
>>426
>bouldering requires no equipment to get started.
Well, except for chalk, chalkbag and shoes netting around 100€ or so for a beginners pack

I go bouldering for exercise twice a week (or as much as the skin on my fingers allow), super good workout and arguably one of the best bodies you can. Much more explosive than the lean and light rope climbers.

Also more fun than going indoor toprope climbing which feels absolutely pointless, "joint climbing" (I think it's called?) indoors is better though for the more creative routes.

Anyways, my gym doesn't have grades sadly (only colors), but I'm around 6c-7b depending on the day. How good is /xs/?
>>
any home wall man in
got a 45 degree wall
>>
>>513
Honestly, in burgerland it's really easy to find beginner's climbing shoes that were used a couple times for 20-30 $. Not sure how it is over there. If you mean the form of climbing where you clip in to the wall, they call it Lead Climbing over here.

Fuck I can't even sniff a 6 but it's also dependent on the gym for grading.
>>
what if youre kinda fat (but not completely weak) and have arthritis in your feet. can I get into it or do I need to get in shape first
>>
>>822
Is it arthritis that won't worsen with stress? I'd start top roping first and some climbing training to drop some weight, but you should be able to do some local VB-V0's. Bouldering is mostly in the toes and edges of your foot.

Pull ups of all kind and grip strength
now im not into bouldering but i did bodybuilding and grip strength is very important cause you can lift heavy but if you cant lift heavy for a long period of time they'll be cleaning your jelly out of every nook and cranny it got jammed into

oh and doing hanging exercises
some of the top guys can hang off of 1 or 2 fingers, its mental
they have this thing called a hanging board

>>2477
bodyweight is a meme for skinny weaklings
when i was in the military and weighed 130lbs i could do 100 pushups without much struggle but i couldn't lift 80lbs over my head
>>
>>2620
I'll take the bait.
For me, it's trying a route and failing miserably, feeling it's absolutely impossible. Then doing the same route over and over and over again 50+ times, and at every attempt rationally evaluate at the same time as the body intuitively calibrates, and to notice at every 5-10th try, I get one move further. And to then at the end, either get up, or give up.

It's a microcosmos of progress. Every problem is solvable, it's just a matter of dedication, skill and talent. Every goal is very reachable, and you can see it right there, you can cheat, but you choose to take the difficult road which noone can even confirm you ever took, the only indicator is your skill as you show your peers you can help them reach their goals.

And above all: I don't need anyone else to do it. It's like lifting weights, but with skill and finesse

While I absolutely love bouldering I wouldn't recommend it for fat people if only for the stress on the ankle and knees when falling after a topout.
As another anon said, you can start with some toprope but regardless climbing is exponentially hard the more you weight so I don't see it being really enjoyable if you can't even move around
>>
>>2477
Little finger strength and a shitton of useless weight in the legs along with the fact that it takes a lot of practice to learn how to move around on a wall tends to do that yeah

>get a belt sander and a tube of masonry/construction adhesive.

>Find an abandoned rail tunnel (make sure it is abandoned)
>use the belt sander to flatten one side of each rock, and the surface of the tunnel, if need be
>Use the masonry adhesive to glue the rocks to the side of the tunnel

You probably shouldn't climb it until the adhesive cures, and you shouldn't expect them to stay there forever. If you want incuts and slopers, just get a chisel or an angle grinder. Chipping holds is French/gay but at least you're just wailing away on a rail tunnel and not Fontainebleu. I don't know exactly how illegal this is in Germany so you'll probably want to keep it to yourself. You can use the same technique on any stone or concrete structure, but rail tunnels give you an inverted plane and most buildings don't.

The injury is just something that's going to be with me from now on. Like it's fine for normal day to day stuff but it flares up during any kind of running and stuff like that. Also I'm prone to twisting my ankle and getting sprains and each time it takes longer and longer to heal. I've had 2 major sprains since then because the joint is weak
I'm ok but if I blow it one more time I'm not sure I'll come back from it. Last time I thought the damage was perminant becsuse the pain was with me for months

Holy fucking SHIT finally we can have a bouldering general.

I do not have shoes rn lol. I've been renting or borrowing for an obscenely long time out of sheer laziness, but that ends now.
Uh, as far as I'm aware I just have normal feet, and I'm primarily gonna use them for indoor bouldering but I'll be going on actual boulders as much as possible too. I want more comfy training shoes, because I'm just an average boulderer right now.

Five Tens are solid first shoes that won't hurt your wallet. Why would you not buy like... after your fifth sessions or something?

>>7847
You don't really hang dead while boundering (or climbing) but your times suggest you will do OK. It's rare that a non-climber just rolls into a gym that does 'good' and your times aren't suggesting that you're special in any way.

If you want a meme test (also includes bar hangs), check out Magnus' 9c video:

Maybe I'm a faggot, but I suffer from panic disorder. The worst part of panic disorder for me are not the panic attacks, but the general anxiety and thought patterns that spiral to doomsday scenarios. I used to be a fat NEET, who abused alcohol to at least sometimes dull and silence my head.

When I found bouldering, I realized how much it "quieted" my head. When I'm bouldering, there is nothing else except the problem, the route and the effort needed to top it. When I'm on the wall, I have no panic, no fear of future, no anxiety nor destructive thought patterns. I was very surprised how much my panic attacks reduced in intensity, frequency and length and how much my general anxiety and fear of future eased after only a month of climbing.

Now that I've done it for a year, I feel like my panic disorder is only a ghost of the pst. I guess any physical excercise would have helped my panic disorder as well, but I fell in love with bouldering/climbing.

Keep doing them every other day, with band assist if that bad, and you'll improve. If gyms are shut and you don't have anything heavy at hand, do a bunch of bodyweight exercises that will incidentally help your pullups.

I don't believe at your level there's a 'quick' way besides just doing it. You'll start doing multiple ones per set in a month if you stop holding yourself back!

Also, eat WELL and hydrate.

Quite a lot of gyms in France do that and add a terrible "comparison table" at the entrance like Yellow = 7b, green = 6c-7a. Some keep it simple while others get into shit like "vertically stripped blue/yellow". It's just a way to appeal to a wider audience but then they go outside and cry on a 5b.

Webmd's description sounds similar, although it's less in my thumb and more in my forearm.

I think I'm just gonna try not to use it much for the next little while and see if it lessens up

You should go have it checked in any case. Skier's thumb can cause reduction in function of the thumb

If you want to make progress i would suggest having longer climbing sessions, if you are only spending 30 minutes on a project that might only mean that you are attempting them 5 or so times,

If you can only spend 1.5 hours at a gym you should probably choose between autobelay and bouldering because splitting your time will probably be detrimental
>15 minute warmup on easy climbs and/or stretching
>15 minutes on things that are somewhat difficult not not project level
>45 minutes of hard cimbing
>15 minutes of easy climbing to end the session

If you are able to spend more time at a gym then i would say go for at least 2 hours but a lot of people cant find this much time but if you can
>15 minute warmup on easy climbs and/or stretching
>30 minutes of climbing on things that are somewhat difficult not not project level
>30 minutes of things that are pretty difficult but not something you would need more then 5 or so tries on
>have a short break no more then 5 minutes deffinitely no more then 10 minutes
>30 minutes of projecting but dont have 30 tries of falling off of the same move over and over, take your time. If you fall look at where you fell and why you fell and how you can do it better wait a few minutes to recover and then have another go.
>15 minutes or so of climbing easy things and just generally cooling down

I assume you are farly new to climbing so you dont need to incorperate any intensive training like campus boarding or deadhangs yet, once you get to around V6(7A) then you should start intergrating that into your session. If you want to get better at climbing rather then do it just for fun or for a bit for exercise then you should be climbing at least 2-3 times per week make sure to have rest days and eat good though, its probably not the best thing to project every other day if you start climbing a more. You dont need to follow this letter for letter i normaly just move on to training or projecting when I feel like im ready.
Good luck gumby

How do you guys warm up outdoor? In a gym I would do basic warm up movements, some very light fingerboard hangs and then random moves on the wall for 15 mins or so. Outside I often think I'm not properly warming up.

It's because most people's first exposure to bouldering is when some bouldering gym brings a wall to their college campus. Colleges are filled with faggots, so it's a selection bias.

Define faggot in the context of bouldering/climbing

They either are a climber that hates boulderers (common out west) or are lumping in boulderers, climbers, and mountaineers (the last of which its common to hate)

Depends on your age, previous sport experiences, how often you climb yada yada. I know guys who have been coming to the gym weekly for more than 5 years and are still 6a-6b. They come mostly for fun and hang around in boomer gangs. On the other hand kids around 16 with too much free time can get to the seventh degree within 6 months.

By no routes do you mean there aren't any boulders either?
>>
>>14415
Don't ever let a girl who climbs give you a handjob. You will regret it.

Talking from experience?

Why is it that half of boulderers are either short vegans with no hair or tall autista with pony tails and glasses. Such a specific archetype for the sport

In Europe all boulderers are regular people, maybe it's an Amerifat thing
