Since at the moment for me most of the bouldering I do is indoors (if this counts as bouldering!), most of the problems are changed after a period of time. Although I once attempted some bouldering at Contos Rocks, WA when I was just beginning and couldn't pull any moves, but when I went back half a year later I was much better - it was quite satisfying to see the progress I had made. I guess it's really just like climbs - sometimes you go back and try some climbs to see how much easier/harder they feel compared to the last time.

Just like climbing really - it depends on your own personal approach. For me at the moment, once I've done a climb I tend not to do it again for a long time. Same with boulder problems. For me, I have limited time on real rock, and wish to try as many routes/problems as possible. I guess for me, I'm at that stage where I'm trying to increase the number of routes I've climbed to get more experience and build up my technique.
