The non-profit I part time work for got a donated bus in the last year, that was converted into a bouldering bus. Needs some work, but it's hanging in there.

This bus has kind of made me want to build up an old bus into an RV, and live in it instead of looking to buy a house in a few years. So I'm probably going to stick around for a bit, digging up information on these things.

In the general sense, yes. Though because it is close to the "ground" and no harness or ropes are used, we refer to it as bouldering.
