I once tried "Friend problem" at Berta Block in Berlin. I tried it with a friend(obviously :D) and we managed to finish our routes after few attempts. It was so much fun using a human as a hold.

I am wondering whether any of the bouldering gyms in London has friend climbing routes/problems?

It would concern me what part of me was used as a hold? I would hope hand jamming was not allowed. A bit of hair pulling maybe depending where. Is it case of anything goes surely there are rules?

Back in the day this was known as 'combined tactics' - especially re standing on someone;s shoulders when the start of a route was particularly hard.

Thats a great video!

Now I realise what it is, you should suggest it to your local gym and see if that can set one. I do like a bouldering gimmick
