Bouldern - Natursport für Kreative

Das DAV-Panorama hat meinen Text ziemlich gekürzt, hier ist der Artikel (und hier eine Slideshow), so wie ich ihn ursprünglich geschrieben hatte:

Vorsicht, potentiell kontroverser Inhalt! Der folgende Artikel geht davon aus, dass der Leser kein Problem damit hat, wenn Menschen jedes Alters und Geschlechts durch Wald und Wiesen huschen und Felsbrocken beklettern um nach dem Klettern spur- und geräuschlos wieder in die Zivilisation zu verschwinden. Denn darum geht es in diesem Artikel, ums Felsbrocken beklettern, auf Neudeutsch: Bouldern, und zwar in Deutschland! Ach Deutschland! Wir Deutschen tun uns mit den kleinen Abenteuern schwer...

Markus Bock bouldert im Frankenjura, ca. 1996
