J. Medernach & D. Memmert (2021). Effects of Decision-Making on Indoor Bouldering Performances: A Multi-Experimental Study Approach.
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether novice, intermediate, and advanced bouldering athletes would differ in their decision-making abilities and to what extent distinct problem-solving tactics would affect the athletes’ bouldering performances. Seventy-seven male bouldering athletes participated in a multi-experimental study with the conceptual replication of three bouldering tasks. In total, the findings emphasize that accomplished decision-making abilities consist of a key determinant in successful indoor bouldering performances.
