I had absolutely no notion of the concepts in SCC

Really Jay? No notion? What the hell were you doing before the book then? You didnt know COG, inside and outside flags, back steps, drop knees and the way these all changed the way you stayed on the rock.

You weren't aware of proper footwork, silent feet or glued hands? You werent aware of your subtle movements and why they worked? Momentum? Lock offs? I find that hard to believe that someone climbing 5.11 or higher got there by luck.

I can put my hand up to that. I climbed with 1 person who knew as much as me about it.. befor we could say boo we was having real decent attempts at 7a's. I never actually realised the moves i was doing had names untill i visited this site.. and as cocky as it may sound i just figured i/we had made them up for each paticular route.

Im looking forward to seing whats in this book and im hoping very much it will boost us into the 7's

I use to think i had good technique but i got shown a trick or 2 not long ago and i realised i have nothing but brute strength, and its not enuf
