Hello. I am Yuki. Have you ever tried bouldering?
It's getting famous in Japan these days. Also, Tokyo olympic will be held in 2020, and bouldering is one of the event. I started bouldrering two years ago. Fisttime, I couldn't climb easy rocks, but I practiced a lot and now I can climb V4 to V5 rocks. It is not easy to plactice long time because of losing power to hold rocks. If it worse, your hands skin might peel off. Therefore, you should not practice hard. Moreover, some peple break their legs, so you have to pay attention for some situations.
Once you practice bouldering at gym, I am sure that you are into bouldering. After you get used to climb with V3 level, I reccomend that going to climb natural rocks. There are no tapes on the rocks, so you have to think how you climb the rocks. You can enjoy it for sure.
I climed these rocks when I was in Santa Barbara. It was first time to climb natural rocks, but it was so fun. I don't have a lot of experiences that climbing natural rocks, so I want to try when I have time.
Please tell me if you know good places to go.
