Video: Highball bouldering solution

Ever had a great highball boulder problem that was extra sketchy because you were afraid of missing your crash pad? This English inventor and climber has come up with a great solution!

“You look down, and the mat’s just below your feet. And you make moves, and you look down, and the mat’s still just below your feet. It never starts looking like a postage stamp lies below ya.”

Note: also very useful for keeping your shoes clean when traversing.

Other note: In case you’re dense, this is a joke.  Don’t do this, you’ll probably get hurt.  And we don’t want that on our conscience.  Always boulder with an attentive spotter and a well-placed crash pad.  We recommend you leave the copper wire bit out of it.
