Bouldering: 2. Leveling Pads

Let us take a closer look at leveling pads while bouldering.

We touched on this in a previous video, but we wish to reiterate how important it is to make sure there are never gaps between pads. Falling and landing between pads leads to serious injury.

Always be sure to line pads alongside one another. You can also stack pads to create a greater safety cushion beneath the fall zone. Some boulderers even use seam sealer pads to fill in gaps.

We hope you found this video helpful. Feel free to comment below with questions or thoughts!


Please remember, climbing is inherently dangerous. Climb at your own risk.
