In addition to being a method to train for outdoor rock climbing, indoor rock climbing in Boulder has become a sport of its own with many participants never touching real rock.
For dedicated rock climbers modern climbing gyms serve as a training ground to hone their craft and take their outdoor pursuits to the next level. Having access to these training facilities has made it easier than ever to pursue other interests in life, family, career etc and still perform at a high level where in the past only those dedicated enough to sacrifice these things and spend all their time on the rock were able to achieve the highest levels.
For many others the indoor climbing gyms in Boulder allow them to pursue another physical hobby like running or soccer where they do not need to dedicate a large chunk of their lives to have a good time. This also allows them to pursue climbing in a safe, clean stress-free environment. There is a considerable difference between the consequences of climbing a 5.11 traditional protected route in Eldorado Canyon and clipping your way out a 5.11 overhang on the gray wall in Movement Boulder.
