injuries due to falling off a boulder problem? 10-Mar-2006 At 7:46:11 AM Goodvibes
You will find that foot, ankle and knee injuries are pretty common in bouldering. Unlike roped climbing where you can often just slump onto a bolt/gear in bouldering every fall is a grounder. With a good pad (put the hard side up unless you are really low to the ground) that is well positioned and an experienced spotter you can greatly minimise the chance of injury but it is bound to happen sooner or later.

No bad injuries just yet. I came down pretty hard and stayed on my feet a while back (much better to drop and roll) no rolling or sprain but trashed my ankle, made it extremely painfull to press the clitch in on the 1.5 hour drive home. Healed within the week though and I was back the next weekend with strapping on the ankle and this time managed to send, luckily.
