Or as an alternative, you could just work the route naked and in the event you start to get pumped, slot your dick in a crack, think of Megan Fox until your man becomes locked in there, and rest on your dong.

Sorry ladies, looks like you'll still be toproping.

I know someone who's done many different routes free "solo" this way. He called it Crazy Bob climbing.

He's mostly free solo and throw in a cam while he worked through the harder parts. If you attached a screamer into the sling system it should work but would never ever be as redundant or safe as just leading the route.

If you're talking about doing this on highball routes, save your energy, it hurts when you land on your ass.

Hey, I was just wondering has any one tried this/think it'll work. say your bouldering up a straight cliff, could you put a cam in the crack and use a quickdraw and clip the cam onto your harnesses and it'll work as a holder for you so you can rest and go higher? i dont know just something i thought of! BRING ON THE FEED BACK!!!!

So this is that "cam climbing" people keep talking about...

I though Crazy Bob just owned fireworks stores.

Anything will take gear if you want it bad enough.

Already invented, it's called sport climbing, which is just aerial [and sometimes multipitch] bouldering.

No, if you're too afraid to jump to the ground, then it's not bouldering anymore. Real multipitch bouldering would probably be hauling a portaledge with crashpads and setting it up every couple of meters...

That's what's essentially happening when you rest on a rope - you've just brought the 'ground' back up under you as far as gravity is concerned.

Also, sport climbers most often do not wear a beanie! Quod Erat Demonstrandum

Already been invented. Or at least wikipedia says something like it has

In reply to:
Solo aid - Free soloing in which the climber wears a harness and a carries limited protection but doesn't use a rope. The climber may free solo or scramble much of the route but use protection only where safety demands it. Doing so involves placing gear overhead which is then attached to the climber via a short length of cord to his or her harness. The climber then climbs above the protection and reaches down to remove the gear before proceeding- possibly after placing another protection point and attaching to it via a second loop of cord. This "leap frogging" or "boot strapping" technique is akin to gear conservation techniques that may be used in traditional climbing. Solo aid may or may not use gear to directly assist ascent.

Lets see here. You don't have enough cash for a crash pad. Yet you have a cam. You should get into trad? Why do you have a cam if you are a boulderer? I'm so confused.
Cams aren't for resting on...they are pro for trad. And what kind of old geezer are you that you need to rest half way up a boulder route? I have so many questions.

So wikipedia, is, on occasion, bullshit? That definition shows a very limited (ok, plain wrong) understanding of 99% of solo-aid.

I don't think bolting the ground will help. Unless you use it as a directional to keep the cam in.
