Abstract

Aim. Bouldering contests consist of a series of short routes, called "problems", which shall be climbed without ropes. The purpose of this study was to determine blood lactate [Lac] con- centration and heart rate (HR) adaptations both during an official bouldering competition and a simulated contest. Methods. Eleven Italian elite climbers (6 males, 5 females) were tested from two bouldering national competitions (BNC). [Lac] assessments were done before and 2, 4, 6, 8 min after the con- test On a separate occasion, 9 different elite climbers (6 males, 3 females), matched for anthropometric features and ranking, were assessed in a simulated bouldering contest (SBC), under conditions and difficulties comparable to BNC. HR was mea- sured through the whole performance; [Lac] was assessed before and 3 min after the achievement of each problem. Results. The ascending time in both BNC and SBC was 391±85 s and 551±96 s (P
