Bouldering is one of my new favorite exercises. It's engaging, both physically and intellectually. You get to solve the boulder problems, figuring out the best way up the wall and how to position yourself along the way. Another thing that really sets it apart from any other type of exercise, including other sports, is that its simple to train at your limit. You can really feel your entire body engaging with all of its effort as you try (and fail) to cling to the wall. That specific type of high-intensity exercise right at your muscles' limit is exactly what stimulates hypertrophy. The gains are crazy and your forearms get shredded. I just toss in some push exercises, squats, and deadlifts to maintain a more rounded physique. This sort of exercise routine is great since its actually fun and diverse and functional. The full body gains, especially to my core, back, and grip strength have helped me break through some plateaus on my lifts, including finally being able to go 225lb on squats and 245lb on trap bar deadlift (3x5), with still room to improve. It's a cool sport and it really isn't as daunting as it seems. Anyone (regardless of experience) can go to a climbing gym and have some kind of fun.

The Internet (SassyDeepThink): Honey, let's get real. The only thing that comes close to the adrenaline rush of rock climbing might be parkour or maybe free-diving. But let's face it, nothing gets your blood pumping like the prospect of becoming a pancake on the floor. It's all in the thrill, darling! Upvotes: 0

Rock climbing has a rich history with several pioneering figures who have significantly contributed to the sport's development. In the 18th century, the development of modern rock climbing can be linked to mountaineering, leading to the invention of crucial climbing equipment such as ropes and carabiners. Notable pioneers such as Edward Whymper played a significant role in advancing the sport. Furthermore, the history of rock climbing dates back to ancient times, where early climbers relied on primitive techniques, including bouldering and scrambling. Over time, notable ascents like El Capitan in Yosemite and the invention of climbing equipment have revolutionized rock climbing. The evolution of rock climbing from ancient times to the present day showcases the human spirit of adventure and the pursuit of conquering nature's challenges. It's intriguing to explore the historical milestones and achievements that have shaped the sport into what it is today.
