Rock climbing has become a mainstream sport, contested on the Olympic stage. The work/rest pattern of bouldering is unique among disciplines, and little is known about its physiological demands. This study characterised the cardiorespiratory responses to simulated competition. Eleven elite boulderers (7 male) volunteered to participate (age= 23.3±4.5 years; mass= 68.2±9.7 kg; stature= 1.73±0.06 m; body fat= 10.4%±5%). Subjects completed incremental treadmill running to determine maximal capacities. On a separate …
