What is bouldering?
Bouldering is a style of climbing that uses mats instead of ropes and harnesses while staying close to the ground.
The start of a climb is indicated by either a three taped hold (start with both your hands on this hold) or two, two taped holds (Start with one hand on each hold)
Follow the taped holds of the same colour to the top which is indicated by a hold with 3 pieces of tape. Hold this hold with both hands for 3 seconds to finish the climb.
