Honestly buildering is a little stupid to be taken seriously, unless you live in the FL or that boot state, you can find rock somewhere, I live MD and I have still been able to climb like scores and scores of problems and I didn't even have a car. Like I can see doing it on a rest day or on a whim, but I can't imagine waking up with rock in the same state and being "I wanna climb a small fucking structure!"

Same thing was said about bouldering 10 years ago.

Shoes are already being designed for this that look like "regular" shoes with sticky rubber.

hard to say where this will go...
