According to ‘natural-born free climber’ Bernd Zangerl ‘there are many reasons for climbing mountains. There are even more reasons for climbing a boulder.’ An activity that was considered only 20 years ago to be mostly a form of training for rock and mountain climbing with ropes has been fascinating a steadily increasing number of enthusiasts, who argue that Bouldering is a more playful form of climbing.

Bouldering goes beyond being just a pastime, it is a sense of community that teaches you to challenge your physical and mental boundaries. Power, discipline, and pure focus that pushes you to new heights. This book shows the different motifs behind bouldering and the inspirational figures of this high-performance sport.
