Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is preformed without the use of ropes or harnesses. Rock climbing first emerged as a sport in the mid-1800's. Early records describe climbers engaging in what is now referred to as bouldering, as a form of training for larger ascents. In the 1980's two important training tools emerged: bouldering mats and artificial climbing walls. The former, also referred to as "crash pads", prevent injuries from falling. Indoor climbing walls helped spread the sport to areas without outdoor climbing, and allowed serious climbers to train year round regardless of weather conditions.
