The article mentions that you should always scout out your landing area before beginning any bouldering problems. Keep this extra little tip in mind:
- Hit the ground feet first, toes facing forward, with your knees bent.
- Absorb shock by collapsing like an accordion.
- Roll backwards to disperse force.
"Except in cases where an obstacle looms immediately behind you (e.g. a wall, person, etc.), there is seldom a reason to remain on your feet. Posting your arm behind you can potentially dislocate or break your elbow, wrist, or shoulder. Also take care when rolling forward, as whacking your head on your knees or the wall will reduce your debonair appearance."
