Subject: bouldering (rock climbing) with triathlon training?
I've recently gotten into bouldering which is basically problem solving rock climbing with no harness. (great workout!). i'm kinda wondering if this type of exercise could hurt my triathlon training, or actually help it? Its a full body workout, and ive been completely addicted to it

Lots of isometric holding in bouldering and it really works upper body strength, so yes.

And then I saw it. I got to "The Hill." It looked a bit innocent really, in reflection - just a little hill, with the road bending around to the left...

I struggled on the bike while climbing the hill portions of the course. I do fine on long straight rides but really have a tough time while hill climbing. Any advice or training tips?
