I recently did a survey on the most popular bouldering YouTube channels and to no surprise the majority of the entries were the channels I already knew. While looking at the data I found it quite interesting to see how many good other climbing and bouldering youtube channels are already out there but are just a little bit under the radar.
In this article I want to share with you the most underrated bouldering YouTube channels and I hope you’ll find a few new ones for your list. 

Underrated Bouldering Youtube Channels

Emil Abrahamsson

„Bits and pieces of my life! I rock climb, train and work as a route setter. Sometimes I do stupid stuff as well.“

A likeable member of the Eric Karlsson Bouldering crew and really strong climber. Did you already know that he started his own YouTube Channel? 

International Federation of Sport Climbing

„World Up…Keep Climbing!
Climbing is one of the basic human movements. Probably one of the reasons why it attracts so many young people who can find in the three disciplines (Speed, Lead and Bouldering) which best fits their personalities. More than twenty-five million people from all around the Globe climb regularly outdoors and almost 3,000 people try climbing for the first time every day. With 83 National Federations on the 5 continents within the IFSC, 58 countries participating in World Championships and 50 in Youth World Championships, the IFSC has seen the Sport growing steadily and becoming spectacular: Something you can’t take your eyes off!“

Watch any of these videos and you’ll quickly realize that I’m not a pro. Since I started climbing in 2017, bouldering has taken me on such wonderful adventures, and has taught me so much. I still have a lot to learn, and I hope you’ll come along for the ride.“

Jason Momoa

People suggested the wide boyz in the survey but besides the Lattice Training youtube channel I did not find another channel of them. People really like videos with their appearance – Why don’t they have an own channel with regular vlogs?
