BOULDERING

HISTORY: Bouldering is a form of climbing that is performed on large boulders or artificial climbing walls without the use of a rope or harness.  In the late 1950s and 1960s, American mathematician/gymnast John Gill brought bouldering to the forefront by declaring it as a separate discipline, introducing gymnastic chalk and a B-Rating system.  As the popularity of bouldering grew, the open-ended V-Rating system was introduced, as well as portable crash pads.  Today, bouldering will be included the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan as one of the three combined disciplines.
