Bouldering

Bouldering is a style of rock climbing undertaken without a rope and normally limited to very short climbs over a crash pad so that a fall will not result in serious injury. is a style of climbing emphasizing power, strength, and dynamics. Its focus is on individual moves or short sequences of moves, unlike traditional climbing or sport climbing, which generally demand more endurance over longer stretches of rock where the difficulty of individual moves is not as great. Boulder routes are commonly referred to as problems because the nature of the climb is often short, curious, and much like problem solving. Bouldering is more focused on the technique of climbing instead of undertaking a full bodied climb.

Every year the club goes on a week long trip to Fontainbleu to go bouldering. Below is a video from the trip in 2011.
