Why I…..With Eddie Yeung

Here we have Eddie Yeung or better know as climb_ed on Instagram to tell us why he boulders and what his passion means to him.

Why I boulder, I began bouldering because it was a way for me to get fit and become more social. But the longer I stuck at it more I really fell in love with the sport. I feel less of a sport for me and more of a test of understanding, understanding how my body works and feels. 

As I’ve progressed through my climbing and learnt a lot more about the sport, from the different types of boulder competition-style bouldering and outdoor bouldering as well as styles such as being more dynamic or static, all these things make bouldering so interesting.

When you start to really get past the hobby level of the sport and spend more time falling off than actually sending a boulder it gets really fun. But this is a double-edged sword. As it can ruin your mental state, but the fun of this level is you notice that small minute changes to things make the biggest differences on whether you send it or not.

The main reason I love this sport is the community. The people, the friendships and memories you make along the way. Without this, it would make it meaningless.
