The Boulder

A Philosophy for Bouldering


'Finding a climber who perceives bouldering as a moving meditation, or one who values form and style far beyond difficulty, is a daunting task . . . in this book, Francis Sanzaro takes a significant step in that direction.' JOHN GILL

A classic text exploring the philosophy of bouldering, giving boulderers a unique voice of their own.

This revised and updated edition of a classic climbing text is an enlightening book of inspirational thoughts on the art of bouldering. It revolutionizes the way we think about this unique sport, bringing it into conversation with disciplines as varied as architecture, dance, skateboarding, painting, parkour, martial arts, and gymnastics. Reading it will enrich your experience of climbing and encourage you to appreciate the natural physicality and artful play of bouldering, often described as the poetry of mountaineering.
