i wasent sure what forum to put this in but because its called the bouldering chair i thought this would be the best place. sombody at the gym i go to thought this up a while ago, its a chair you start sitting in and you twist around it and go under from the back then you come out from under the fromn and over back to where you started sitting all without toucking the ground. does that make sence??? has anyone ever headr of this before?

  Boulderers have been doing that problem for a long time. Look around at your kitchen (furnitures) and you'll find more problems to play with (i.e. counter top, tables)

In the spirit of inprovisation, I have been campusing up the side of my stairs.

I am constantly looking for things to climb. I feel like the MacGyver of Bouldering!

I did the 1st story of cobblestone wall (very thin!) outside my corporate job before the rentacop started spewing about liability.

The buildings around the New York State capitol are perfect for buildering. Some years back a permit was offered for authorized climbing on the walls of the Museum building. That is until then Gov. Coumo say a climber one day, asked his assistant to have him come down. Apparently, the climber was less than friendly to the assistant and Governor. From that day on, climbing on the state capitol buildings was prohibited. It is really the only place in the capitol district that you could climb on real rock without driving 45 minutes.

Just goes to show you, in matters of land access, you never know who you are mouthing off to. Seen it happen with climbing, seen it happen with mountain biking.

I work seasonally at Rock Creek Outfitters in Chattanooga. And when things get slow there we do a "problem" called "The Pew Problem". We have a church pew for people to sit on and try on shoes. So we do the chair problem on that. Those hymnal holders make huge jugs.

Then we began doing the tabletop problem. That one is the best, in my opinion. You need a table tall enough so that when you push down with straight arms on it, your feet are dangling off the ground. From that starting position, you drop down beneath, keeping your feet off the floor. Then dyno under the table for the opposite "lip". Match here and mantle up on the other side of the table, all without touching the ground. The match and mantle are the "crux".

My Brother's place has huge old moldings on ethe doors and stuff. We start in the kitchen doorway, cross across a narrow halway to another door, from there to a column with ledge about 3/8inch.

Once your on the column you reach across about 3 or 4 feet to a matching colum for the stairway.

All of this is done on wood covered in thick shiney paint with little friction

Stand on the railing and pull yourself onto the second floor. But since the stairs do a 180 you have less then a foot to pull yourself to. Luckily one skinny rock monkey

As far as variations on chair-climbing go, we had one in college called Martin-climbing.

Check out this photo http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos.php?Action=ListPhoto&PhotoID=3560

Just like with chair-bouldering, the object was for you (as a small guy) to circumnavigate Martin (a big guy) without touching the ground, and with no assistance from Martin.

I'd still like to see photos of how to do it with a chair. Notice the heel hook to the clavicle - key beta!

Body bouldering is all about the sequence, once you've got that down it's not very hard.

It's also about finding a nice cute girl to boulder around you
