- n. a climber who takes part in bouldering
Sorry, no etymologies found.
As a a sport climber and boulderer in general and a PA climber in particular, I just felt that JT's comment couldn't go unanswered (I still have a little pride / ego even as I get older).
Im not a boulderer but i think most of the guys are working the rocks in the river between Devils Hole trail (east side) and Babel Tower trail (west side).
To my way of thinking (and I am not primarily a boulderer) a pad stack is one method of safely going higher at your level of safety comfort. jgill wrote: Well, I still think that the popularity of pads and their place in the ethical paradigm of bouldering were encouraged by those who wished to manufacture and market them, but I certainly see how they can be used to advantage - as their analogues are in gymnastics - in appropriate settings.
