“Bouldering is a solo sport you do in a group”
Bouldering is a fast-growing sport – and a way of life. Every sportsman needs to find his own way through the rocks, but bouldering is still a group sport. When climbing without safety ropes, Mau-Dong Lau (28) is not only challenging his physical limits. An important part of it is the digital connection.
The sport of bouldering is growing steadily in Germany, and participants have extremely good mobile networks. For bouldering in the gym, Mau arranges an ad hoc chat group. Bouldering outdoors, on the other hand, needs careful preparation. Reliable and up-to-date weather information, navigation and topography apps, a mobile phone camera and video portals are must-haves. As well as digital communication. Because as a boulderer, you fight your own battles. But the community always has your back.
