"It was not immediately clear how Chapman became trapped under the boulder." In no way does this apply that he was a boulderer or even bouldering. Go bash on somebody else besides boulderers! Roped climbing is just "practice climbing" for bouldering anyway!!! Brad Caldwell

You know I'm not even sure how he could have been "climbing". Last time I checked a washing machine was pretty small. I can't even think of a boulder like that next to one of the climbs up at flag. Could be just another case of people calling someone a "climber" just because they are near rocks.

Unless its that boulder I've seen that picture of Lee climbing.

None of you have seen Little Devil, obviously. As for the boulderer bashing, it is tradition. It cannot be undone.

Wait, I always thought bouldering was a way to build strength for the cruxes on routes. Pebble wrestling is fun and all, but how can you try to make it sound superior to route climbing? That's just silly!

It was, but then techno was invented and the bouldering video was born.

So, who is going to send the new boulder problem thusly created by the exfoliated rock? Stich

You laugh, but there is a precedent at Table Mountain when a whole route peeled off from freeze-thaw one winter. Stich

I think it's the new gopher-start technique, there's a how-to book and movie on it from Utah. Buff Johnson

I smell a route climbing vs. bouldering argument about to emerge...
