For their study, a team of researchers from the University of Arizona has analyzed more than 100 adults from Germany, divided into two groups. One group started rock climbing without ropes or harnesses immediately. Another group waited to start the sports activity.

Study author Eva-Maria Stelzer says: “Bouldering, in many ways, is a positive physical activity. 'There are different routes for your physical activity level and there's a social aspect, along with the feeling of an immediate accomplishment when bouldering.”
