Topic - Sore knees after indoor bouldering

Simos on 29 Jan 2014
Any ideas on how to best absorb the impact when falling/jumping off? I religiously down climb whenever it's possible (which is probably 9 times out of 10) but obviously there are some times that I have to jump off or I simply fall and land on my feet. Even these few times seem to be enough to give me sore knees :-(

I currently land and bend my knees sideways until i break the fall by hitting the mat with both hands between my knees (if that makes sense?). Should I be doing something different?

Also, I generally have weak legs - do you think that starting to do some squats etc for strength would help?

Thanks for any advice in advance
