(no i'm not following you, i just think this is funny)

haha a) what does parkour have anything to do with bouldering b) what does parkour have to do with climbing .. at all? c) if you are going to compare something.. you should .. like.. compare them?

i think parkour is interesting and sure there is some easy 4th class buildering sometimes but still reminds me of that "free style running" they tried to pull out in the 90's with the shoes with the skid plates in the middle

I think those Parkour rats can easily climb your little hardcore sport climb and with no rope.

I am with Majid, those guys are something else.
I would say that it is similar to bouldering in that it has origins, finds inspiration in and derives moves from gymnastics. Like bouldering, it also involves bodily movement with little or no safety net. It is an individual sport, and can be participated in without any form of competition. Also, a lot of parkour involves climbing up stuff - sort of like bouldering. That kind of movement, whether on a rock or a brick wall, is all about letting your inner child and sense of play take over and turning the world into your playground.
As far as being countercultural, I would say that for now parkour has climbing beat. Climbing has gone pretty mainstream. If you are looking for a sport that is not yet owned by corporate America, you have it... until Nike figures out how to market a parkour shoe.

Bouldering looks like a joke when it comes to Parkour. While boulder rats are trying to get those pads in right position, parkour dudes are just flying over with nothing to worry about.

I'd like to throw you a little rage, or even righteous idignation, but I just don't feel you've earned it here. Please try again.

Actually, I am a little pissed at the lack of effort here. This has to be a troll; there's just no way this post or the first post could be legitimate unless you were one of those 'special needs' kids... y' know, the ones that have to wear... a helmet... everywhere... oh, I see.

No doubt. Gotta go with bouldering on this one. When a boulderer faceplants they don't jump up and start babbling about "this! this is the spirit of parkour!!". Too french for my tastes.

I work with this guy, Paul Darnell. He is bad ass. Also quite good on the boulders and in the climbing gym he tears it up. He is a serious gymnast.

Son is dealing with his typical PMS today as always and normally he goes blind.

That is why you always hear this from JACKEDUP

" what this has to do with climbing?" following a finger &*&%%()_((&^

Anyway, I think parkour has every thing to do with climbing , in fact it is combination of stroung bouldering with great balance.

At some point, the marrige of Parkour, Gymnastics and training will result in a big leap in climbing standards. Maybe even on big walls.

Can't wait to see it.

BTW, I try running with my lad to pull some simple moves and Parkour is much more difficult than it looks.

Adidas already tried. Their parkour specific shoe didn't work as well as some general cross trainers/running shoes that were already produced, heh. Parkour goes hand in hand with climbing. Parkour teaches you the same things about knowing how the body can move, as well as how to bail from a highball bouldering problem with a smooth landing, heh.

That would be sweet. There is already a Parkour technique for running up a hallway's walls by jumping from wall to wall and gaining a little each time. Just think about being able to run up some huge chimney.Shocked Yee Haw

I love it when these guys run fast on left side of the wall then right then left and then they are on top.I like to know if they have names for their moves.

Yes we do have names for all the stuff. When you run up bouncing between two walls like was mentioned, it's called tic-tacking. There are names for just about everything you'll see a true traceur do. The problem is these days there are two branches, parkour, and free running. Parkour is about smooth motion and overcoming obstacles with the least energy spent. Free running is similar but is more about aesthetics, so they'll do stuff like throw in extra spins just because they think it looks cool.

You're never really popular until you get ripped on regularly in an online forum.

But yeah, Parkour is a great way to keep in shape between climbs, and most climbing techniques can be applied to it.

Whatever the right orthograph is, "parkours" could be compared with the - sometimes old - "circuits" that can be found in the Fontainebleau Forest. The "circuits" are a linking of up to 50-60 boulders of the same difficulty, whatever is is. To go from a boulder to another one, there's sometimes no other "official" possibility than to jump, or sometimes to downclimb boulders. Looking at experimented circuits boulderers, it can be pretty dynamic.

So, if a "parkour" is not bouldering, placed in a historical perspective, a link could be found. But I suppose that "parkours" have some roots in gymnastics and assault courses or obstacle courses as well. Thus, magic_sabbat post isn't completely inane.

Parkour is pretty cool. I saw a guy doing it in Pittsburgh and landed on his shoulder/head. Not the softest landing in the world, I guess thats why I like dirt below my climbs.

My bro tried to do a little parkour on the way down from royal arches...

he saw this little ramp and he said ok.. i'm gonna run and jump and skid on that ramp and then i'm going to jump again and land it.

well.. he ran... jumped... skidded, then stopped skidding, then tipped over and then fell 15 feet onto his face. had he not stopped his forward momentum by smearing off 6 of his 10 fingertips he would have rolled down one of those death slabs in the north dome gully.

it was fucking hilarious except i didn't know my way out and if he would have died then it would have really sucked to call the rangers.

What is this structure?


I've seen it in several videos. What is it's purpose? Kinda a climbing wall? A sculpture?

I would say that it is similar to bouldering in that it has origins, finds inspiration in and derives moves from gymnastics. Like bouldering, it also involves bodily movement with little or no safety net. It is an individual sport, and can be participated in without any form of competition. Also, a lot of parkour involves climbing up stuff - sort of like bouldering. That kind of movement, whether on a rock or a brick wall, is all about letting your inner child and sense of play take over and turning the world into your playground.
As far as being countercultural, I would say that for now parkour has climbing beat. Climbing has gone pretty mainstream. If you are looking for a sport that is not yet owned by corporate America, you have it... until Nike figures out how to market a parkour shoe.

Bouldering looks like a joke when it comes to Parkour. While boulder rats are trying to get those pads in right position, parkour dudes are just flying over with nothing to worry about.

well but flying...generally..is not climbing ;)

The English and French are pretty close here... practically the same word.

Lac = fluffernutter... and if anyone tries to tell you it means 'lake' they're a dirty liar.

Seems like climbing in that respect. I have never actually needed to go up. I find the hardest way to get up a mountain/cliff/boulder, then try to find the easiest way up that hard route. Then I just go back down again. Statistically, that is the most dangerous part.

How many times have you been out climbing and had someone holding a ham sandwich and a walking stick tell you "You ain't got to scale that thang, the trail to the top is over the there."

The point is not getting somewhere effortlessly, or using the least energy; its making it look that way.

I find it hard to believe that a parkour rat can send a "hardcore" sport climb. I mean sure, they run fast and jump a lot, but there's this thing called angle, and I don't think they'd perform well on anything that's >=90 degrees
but anyhow, I'm a total iliterate when it comes to parkour.

I guess I worded it poorly the first time. It's about using the most efficient way to get from one place to another. In the example of going up the stairs, it takes more energy to tic-tac up, but you save a lot of time. I think the best way to think about it is to imagine that you're running from the cops. You want to put as much distance between you and the cop, but you don't want to waste all of your energy right away, because you could be running for a while. I have some friends who actually do that to train. Security guards have a tendency to not like traceurs, so they'll go out somewhere, do something near a guard, then try to get away. I personally haven't done it because pissing off cops usually isn't the best idea in the world, and I'm not confident enough in my parkour skills to test em like that.

Hey if you look at it that way, bouldering and parkour are similar, in that having skills in both facilitates unlawful behaviour, seriously, training for bouldering is like house robbing 101

Parkour is far more interesting to watch than bouldering any day (childish boulderer put-downs notwithstanding). I love the 'Russian climbing ninjas' video on youtube, although the French rap used as the soundtrack really makes it even more engaging.

To me, parkour performer = gymnast/boulderer/Peking opera acrobat/rude boy.
