Falling and Spotting

Two interesting articles up recently covering falling technique while bouldering, both on Climbing Business Journal:

 

Elevating Proper Falling Technique

And a video on this post, how to fall, (love your feedback on this :):

I'd suspect gymnastics has some great information/experience on this topic.

 

This also translates outside along with spotting and getting people involved. As someone who landed across his back on a spiky boulder due to his spotters(plural) all sitting back and watching without spotting or moving mats, I'm a big believer in this. You?
