/ could you hurt yourself falling off a boulder problem
Anyhow, I have climbed boulder problems that i have hurt myself falling off. If so why dont they get e.grades. I severly hurt my thigh falling of a boulder problem, is that worth e1 or 2. Once I actually hurt my right arm falling off a V4 believe it or not, could I please claim E9, It would be the hardest thing I will ever climb.

No working today I'm afraid, but it's my last week until may 2014, so I'm quite happy about that. 2 months in Scotland, 2 months in France and Italy, and 1 month in Austria.
Happy bored day mate

remember that any thing you say about this topic is just backing up the fact!
"Could you hurt yourself falling off a boulder Problem?"
Not if its on gritstone. Nowhere does it outcrop high enough.
Its Frictional Properties are so good if you do fall off, youre doing something wrong.
If youre still worried about hurting yourself, i believe the trend is to wait Until it Snows, bury the bottom Two thirds of the route or Problem Under snow, make the one move to the top, then Pretend youve Climbed it. I think this is called snowballing (Although Snowballing actually is a rather nasty sexual act some people are into).
If there is no snow handy, you can still negate the imaginary Fear of hurting yourself by using a sissy mat.
If However, youre bouldering on real rock, ie. Limestone, then yes it can Reach Heights where you can hurt yourself. Quite Badly in fact.

I don't quite get your posts on this thread. You started with a good question, but then hurled abuse later.
Anyway I'll answer your OP. Very sorry to hear you hurt yourself falling off a boulder problem. But I wouldn't give them e.grades because people can also hurt themselves badly by falling down a step or two or even on flat ground.
Can I give my stairs at home an E rating? Pitch 2 is particularly steep.
If you'd stayed in bed with her, you might have found something to do!
A guy was killed bouldering about ten years at ago at Aconcagua base camp. The boulder rolled over on top of him. As someone points out, even stairs can be dangerous!
A friend of mine broke her leg in three places thanks to a bouldering fall. It wasn't even a highball...
