Bouldering and the Sun Spot

We all know about spotting in bouldering, but what about sun spotting? That’s what I’m calling the technique that you can see in this video from 0:39 to 0:46. The spotter is holding up a small pad to block the sun and keep it out of the climber’s eyes. Neat little trick, one that I’ve never thought of doing before.
