boldering / soloing 12-Nov-2007 At 2:57:58 PM Ronny
I didn't say that people can't have their own idea of what the definition of bouldering is, but that I think that whatever definition you accept shouldn't allow for two people who climb the same bit of rock to be doing something different. It makes no sense for me to climb something 6m high, be scared silly, and call it soloing, and then for you to come along and do it easily with a casual chalk-n-blow on the final move and call it bouldering.

You just look at the piece of rock, determine on a bunch of non-individual-specific factors (height, landing, way its normally done, presence of bolts etc) whether its a route or a boulder problem, and then you have the answer to the original question in the thread.
