/ Listening To Music When Bouldering
Seen a few people wearing full size headphones, bit daft if you ask me!
There is a bloke who always has his headphones on and consequently never speaks to anyone even tho he is there 2 or 3 times a week, maybe this is the point but it seems a bit odd to me as I enjoy the social banter at the wall, by wearing headphones you are defiantly sending out "don't talk to me" signals.
Also tried headphones while bouldering outside but found that even more distracting.
Love Pretty Lights and Opiuo to boulder to.
It's only by talking to others that i'm learning new tricks. I could try blue tooth while I climb, just need to find someone who would want to hear me swear and grunt a lot on the phone.
