    I seriously don't konw how this is done. Looks cool -but lke Gale- not for me.
    Is this a training session or is the padding for "just in case" ....

    You would have to put all the padding on me to get me to do that.

    Cool shots.

    Thanks.

    Bouldering is climbing in a low high were you can jump on the ground without hurting you. What you call "padding" are crash pads - when you jump or fall down from the rock on it you won't harm yourself.

    Boulders (the stones) are usually not very high (so that you don't need a robe), but very difficult to climb.

    For further information visit wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouldering
     
  6. Not for the feint of heart! Great shots of the sport though. You've captured the feel of it. Love your choice of angles!
    Glad to see the padding.... you only get one body - might as well take care of it!
