Bouldering’s appeal can be rooted from the fact that you feel free as there is little equipment involved. It is just you and the 3-5 m wall, solving problems with just shoes and chalk on your hands. But what happens after reaching the top? You got to jump down. It can happen, and most of the time it dows, that you fall. You fall often!
The proper way of falling is one of the first things taught in bouldering. As they say, safety is a priority. Even if the wall is shorter than the lead wall, a bad fall can still cause serious injuries. You can only do so much, especially when you’re stuck in an uncomfortable position, you can’t guarantee to fall the one correct way. No two falls are exactly the same, and the gymnastic moves of bouldering often require our bodies to get into funky positions, meaning there’s no “one right way” when it comes to safe fall or ladings. The following list is a set of guidelines that you might want to practice and think about any time you head out for a bouldering session, whether inside or outside.
