I'm going to go with the observational and anecdotal evidence that more bouldering=more accidents. I very rarely boulder but I've broken my ankle 3 times bouldering. I may have a bung shoulder at the moment, but I've climbed 3+ days a week for 28 years for a total of 2 fingers, 2 shoulders and an ankle. That makes the ratio of injuries to bouldering a lot higher. Add to that being told the other day that there is a serious injury every week on the bouldering gym my friend works at and another friend sporting a bouldering broken ankle, bouldering is not coming out in a good light.
