What type of climbing is right for me?

How did that route get that name? Jokes. Funny bits. Crag humour.

I come out at bouldering - that can't be right! An no - I don't get there through Kung-Fu...

Extract from a climbing dictionary:
"Boulder (n.) place close to the ground to practice falling. When climbers aren't climbing, they like to sharpen their skills by bouldering on large rocks located in places frequented by impressionable tourists. Because bouldering is done without protection, the rule is never to climb higher than you'd like to fall. That is why so many climbers stand around discussing boulder problems instead of climbing them."
"There is something fundamentally wrong in treating the Earth as if it were a business in liquidation." Herman E Daly

Hahahhaha me too!
Every time I'm up on a trad route, trying to get that flipping nut to stick in that groove where no nut will stick... even though my previous piece is by my knees... I say to myself "Why don't I just go bouldering?!?"
Cheers
