Play the boulderball correctly
The Boulderball is a pocket-sized climbing wall. That means you can climb a given route like on the climbing wall. Take a good look at the ball first. It consists of small pentagonal handles and larger hexagonal handles, each with two different characteristics: the handles have a protruding structure, or are indented. There are also 10 different colors.
Here we go!
• Take a route map (difficulty level 1 to 7) and look at the grip sequence. The routes always follow a deliberate line (here for example Drei Zinnen).
• Add magnesium to fingers for better grip.
• Use both hands when climbing. However, only 3 fingers are allowed to touch the ball at the same time. It doesn't matter which fingers you use, they can always be different.
• The boulder ball is always kept free in the air when climbing. Laying down or supporting is not allowed.
• Make sure that the surface is not sensitive, as the boulder ball can "fall".
• Hold the boulder ball up at the first two indicated holds of the tour. With a third finger you hold handle 3 of the route. Now release grip 1 and move on to grip 4 (doesn't have to be with the finger of the first grip). Follow the given route in this way.
• Once a finger is positioned on a grip, it may no longer be exchanged for another. However, the finger may change position on the handle, ie slip.
• If you managed to climb and descend without a "crash", you have reached the goal.
• You can also free climb or create your own routes.
Tip: As with wall climbing, only the right technique will get you there. So try different finger combinations and postures. You will see that a small change is often the key to success.
Follow the game rules of the basic manual. However, you can simplify this by climbing with four fingers. Eg Hold the ball with two fingers on the first two grips, take two fingers of the other hand and hold grips 3 and 4. Release grip 1 and move to grip 5 with any finger, release grip 2 and move to grip 6 etc.
DYNO - variant for professionals:
Use two fingers of one hand. Hold the first two handles. Follow the route by jumping from holds 1 and 2 to holds 3 and 4 and so on. The ball is briefly free in the air. Always use the same hand on the dyno.
