David Flanagan, 34, boulderer
I started bouldering as a teenager because I couldn't afford climbing gear; me and a friend went off to Dalkey quarry in Dublin and made it up as we went along.
With rope climbing there's a lot of faff and you have to stay in your limits. With bouldering you get better use of your time.
