Climbing is as much a mental activity as a physical one.
do your best!
A brilliant strength workout is climbing. Shorter climbs are all about power, while over longer climbs you can work on your stamina.
You need to concentrate on manoeuvres while you climb, which will help you build problem-solving skills.
Technique is all
Use your legs and let your arms dead hang until your next move, becouse tension in your arms will fatigue you quickly. It’s not just about strength but how well you move.
A pull-ups aid your climbing strength, so you should spend more time on bodyweight exercise. No one cares about what you can bench or squat on a rock wall.
There’s nothing worse than cramping up mid-movement and coming off the wall to swing around like a fool. Devote time to stretching before and after your climb.
Plan your route
A route plan is essentially a cheat sheet that helps you to make decision before hand and keep track of your progress. Pick your route difficulty and assess the best way up.
what people say
I spent three full days rock climbing, one by myself and two with my kids, ages 10 and 14. Instructor listened to what climbing I had done in the past and what I really wanted to focus on learning. His absolute concern for safety impressed me the most, especially having two young climbers. My kids were especially relaxed I think your instructor helped them learn at an accelerated rate.
I just wanted to thank you, had a fantastic time. Instructor was awesome, I was really impressed, everything was very professional, so I felt real comfortable with him leading, so tell you thanks again. You guys truly rock!!! I will be back soon. Thank you once again for your time and for doing an excellent job! You are so professional and it’s a sure pleasure for me to work with you.
Fantastic Time! My two friends and I complete new to climbing, had a half day climbing during the morning, and went on to deep water soloing trip in the evening, which was just amazing. The instructors were lovely and fun – they really tried to make it enjoyable for everyone. This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you for a great experience and some excellent pics to remember it by.
