What is Bouldering Outdoors
Bouldering outdoors is a form of rock climbing. The climber doesn’t need a rope, as bouldering is practised on small cliffs and boulders usually less then 5 metres in height with a crashpad for safety. Bouldering is a popular aspect of rock climbing as it doesn’t require all the technical equipment involved in roped climbing and it’s really fun.
