Bouldering is a form of rock climbing. In my case...

I keep reasonably fit, I think. My job in bike retail and repair requires a fair amount of me being on my feet for most of the day and I cycle into work regularly, though not as much as I really should! I’ve tried to do more than that a few times. Gyms don’t really work for me and apart from some recent strength training, we will come back to this, at home, I have never really stuck to any home routines. Last year I got into Bouldering, and I have really taken to it. If you’ll indulge me, I’d like to introduce Bouldering to you, and look at why I think it grabbed me so much and why I think it might appeal to those with a boardgaming mindset.

We have a bouldering place here in Grand Rapids that is quite fun. I love the physical puzzle aspect of it. There is a particular hold on one of the walls that my group nicknamed 'O'Keefe' due to the interesting silhouette.

I've done a little indoor roped climbing, which was fun. There's definitely a puzzle aspect to activities like this that is intellectually stimulating.

I've been meaning to take the class on bouldering at my university; signing up for classes is super cheap for faculty and I'd like to take a shot at it. Maybe once I earn tenure and the pressure is off.

Cool!

Where I live is more or less surrounded by national park and bush and is what as far as I can tell can only be described as a climbers paradise. I know people who moved here specifically for the climbing and town is in normal times filled with climbers heading out for the day.

I'm not one myself, but I appreciate the strategic element for sure.

My jam is exploration, I guess, and it's got a kind of similar element Checking out the map (or not), asking the questions - can you get from here to here? What's this feature? Is this a pass? Is this track that disappears off the map in the 80s still there? - and then trying to find the answers. Quite often that will involve a little bouldering by its very nature. There are tonnes and tonnes of slot canyons as well, which also has that element.
